CC3 - 7 ........shabby chic jewellery box updated with original photo

Painted Industrial meets shabby chic jewellery box!
Over on  Studio L3,  Linda Ledbetter and her wonderful crew (do go and check them out) are sharing their masterpieces for the seventh challenge of The Compendium of Curiosities Vol 3 Challenge (CC3), from Tim Holtz's latest publicationIn respect to Tim please don't ask for the technique used; you need to get your own copy :-)
The challenge this time is Painted Industrial technique, which can be found  on page 46. 
I've put my twist on this as I wanted to use this technique but with a different colour. 

Here's a close-up of the top

 This looks like it's a totally different colour but that's the trouble with photographing metal, the photos I took inside looked dull but these ones outside look different colours. I used Salty Ocean and white, just to give you an idea of the true colours. The metal was stretched to the extreme over the stars!

I've just found the original photo of the box!

 The fabulously generous people over at Inspiration Emporium are offering a $50 prize! 

Thanks for looking

Such a lovely custom box... the texture is fantastic and I love that you went with the Salty Ocean and white... a great spin on this challenge! Thanks for joining us at CC3C.

Hi Karin. Your altered box is awesome! You did a nice job on Tim's painted industrial technique. I love the pops of blue color on this. The Salty Ocean against the white is very striking and a neat "spin" on what is usually used on this technique. Your design on the box is really nice, too. Thanks so much for joining us at CC3C. <3 Candy

Stunning project, Karin. I love the blue I seem very drawn to that colour. It is tranquil.
Great techniques used and I'm so pleased you put that sentence about respecting Tim.
I paid for both CC101 & CC102 & feel quite cheated when I see some of the techniques on the pages of Craft Stamper magazine. I paid good money to learn those and was asked not to share them!
