I am stoked about this project!!! I have been itching to decorate a box lately. I had a completely different idea when I had started…but I remembered about this sick image from Strange Skin, and I knew this was the way to go!
I love this digi! And…I have to admit, I love how this box came out! But wait…ya gotta get a close up of this image!
Look at the middle finger on the right hand! You can click on the pic to make it bigger. It’s just bone! Isn’t that cool??? I colored the image in with my colored pencils, and then inked on top of it with Antique Linen and Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I Mod Podged it to the box after the box itself was completed.
As far as how I made the box…I used Making Memories Paints, which are acrylic…intended for paper, but the work fabulously on wood too! I used Celery and aged it with Evergreen. Then, I went over the corners a bit with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Then comes the blood splatter!!! From the devil herself, Martha Stewart (just kidding!). This is actually a stencil for coloring cupcakes! I saw the set this one came with in the store, and my first thought was Glimmer Mist!!! But obviously, I didn’t want pretty, shimmery blood. So my sister Pam, had a great idea! To use ink and emboss it. So I did just that! And it came out perfectly.
Ahhhh…it feels great to make something other then a card. Not that I don’t adore making them…but as an artist, I love to dabble in all sorts of projects. And decorating boxes is something I love to do!!!
