BBA February Team Challenge - Red Heart and Rose Trinket Box

This is my first challenge piece for the BBA Team on Etsy.  Because it's a month of love, hearts, and the color red, the challenge was to incorporate red into a new creation.  I'm facing some difficult decisions in my life right now, so I thought I could use the reminder to 'Believe' ~ I stamped the word into gold clay, then created an eyelet edging around it.  I textured the clay on the box and brought the red clay up on the corners of the word Believe, like it's unfolding a special message.  The bottom part of the box is gold, and I mixed red clay with gold clay to create the roses.  To finish it off, I brushed a gold mica powder on it, to make the the entire Trinket Box shimmer.




Red is my favorite color, and this was a fun Trinket Box to create!  I enjoyed the challenge... Every time I create something new I think of so many more things I want to make...  Always so inspired!  If only I had more time...
