Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

We have reached week 16 of 2014 and the challenge on The Documented Life Group is: Add a cardboard food box in a creative way. This provided a bit of a problem living where I do. There are no take-away food shops here in West Linton. That's right, none at all! And even had there be, food boxes are not necessarily provided in take-aways here in Scotland. Specially not ones with patterns or images on it. You're more likely to be handed your food in a newspaper. I ruled out a visit to McDonalds as it seemed just a bit mad to drive about 10 miles to the nearest one to buy food I don't want to eat, merely so I could use the carton it comes in. Instead I looked around and yesterday was the day I gave my hair a new lease of blondness. That comes in a carton so I decided to put this to good use.
I must have been mulling it over during the night as I woke up this morning with the words "Gentlemen prefer blondes" ringing in my ears and knowing exactly which of my rubber stamps would be put to good use. I used a previously circle painted paper for the background, stitched on the elements of the hair dye packaging and added the 3 gentlemen, who were stamped onto gelli plate printed deli paper.
I added more details with markers and watercolour pens and have now tipped the page into my 2014 Moleskine planner. It might not respond exactly to the brief but this is my planner after all and I'm pleased with it.
