Well this is my second box in the set given to me by Julie at Scrapbook Sisters (apologies as I don’t know how to link yet).
I really enjoyed making this box. Firstly I covered the box and lid with Distress Ink pad – Rusty Hinge. When dry I stippled on Viva Terra (Terracotta effect) Greek, a texture type paste. When that was dry I stippled on top with Viva Ferro Metal Effect colour Golden Green, then a bit of Walnut Stain Distress ink pad. The leaves were stamped onto card and coloured with various Greens and orange distress pads, Some of the leaves I covered with Glossy Accents.
I used a fine silver metallic thread to create the spiders web. I didn’t have any black beads for the spider so I threaded some pearls onto black wire and covered them with Ranger Black enamel and wired around the beads to create the legs.
The fly was made in the same way but with wings. I then used Glossy Accents to fill in the wings and then sprinkled with Glamour Dust.
The little ladybird was a little red bead cut in half and spotted with the black enamel paint. Butterflies to finish off and a few blobs of Glossy accents on the spiders web.
I found this quite difficult to photograph as it was quite overcast today and when I used the flash the pictures came out like Blackpool illuminations! If you want a look see in the flesh Julie has the boxes so far in the shop.
Thanks again for stopping by
