Kitchen Sink Stamps - Going Green Challenge

It's Kitchen Sink Stamps Challenge Day - this month's challenge hostess is Lynn. Her challenge is to take some previously used non-stamping item that is headed for the trash can and turn it into a component in your Kitchen Sink project either as a layer or embellishment of some sort! Trash to Treasure so to speak!

For my challenge piece I used a box that my friend Robin had send me a few months ago. She said her daughter had received some kind of makeup in the box, and thought it would be something I'd like to alter. I thought the box would be perfect to collect shells and whatnot at the beach. I ripped and sponged some Baja Breeze card stock from Stampin' Up!, to resemble water, then used the Kitchen Sink Stamps 3 Step Sea Shells to stamp images to add to the panels. All shells are stamped as follows, with the exception of the Conch Shell - Creamy Caramel stamped off, Caramel, Caramel. The Conch was stamped in Blush, Caramel, Caramel, Caramel and Caramel.
