Zombie Box- Day 5 of 31 Days of Halloween

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!!!

Now please visit the rest of the Wicked Blogs (posted on my sidebar). There is so much to see, and it all rawks! Have an inspiring day!

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
