Standing Up For All Women - SDC 151: Boxes

I think everyone needs something to believe in and something to fight for.  I hope you're all with me in appreciating the hazards we women face when dealing with capes and restrooms.  'nuff said?

I'm not sure this is exactly what Arwen had in mind when throwing out the box challenge, but my quirky sense of humor overrode my sensible side and I created this for SDC 151.

 The message on the sign totally cracked me up.

Originally I was going to alter an Altoids tin for this challenge.  In fact, there is one sitting on my desk all painted and ready to go.  However, I saw a plain, white Dial soap box sitting on the bathroom counter (where one of my little lovelies left it after removing the soap...hmmm) and "Soapbox!" popped into my head.  

I had no idea what Topknot would be pontificating about so am relieved that my 'Well Said' pinterest board helped me out.

The box covering is tissue paper that I painted with acrylics and added some Stickles to.  I cut the Dial logo from a plastic wrapper.  The soap bubbles are from a background stamp that I embossed onto vellum, colored with Copics and added little glittery bits to as well.   Some adhesive foam lifts Topknot off the background so she can really catch your attention to share her message.

Stampotique stamp: Topknot, Bla bla bla

Thanks for stopping by and have a fab weekend!
