"Secret" Swap

Secret swap with my art group - I started with this box kit that I had in my stash.
Played with alcohol inks to create the boxes
Next, I took my new mask by Balzar Designs and some mists, and layered the peacock feather on to the boxes.
A new Tim Holtz background stamp with some archival ink around the box edges
Rubbed some distress ink over the archival ink designs, then a bit of rubbing to let them shine through
Stamping with bubble wrap and paint - I love the texture this gives!
Added in some purple paint dots to the design
Painted the outside of the box with a mix of acrylic paint and irridescent paint
Used my mask and sprays again on the outside of the box, then added some detail with a metallic pen
Stamped "passion, desire and believe" on the outside of each box, then glued the boxes into place
Side and top view of the finished box
Added some hardware and a ribbon for closure, then, off it went to the secret swap
I hope the recipient finds some great uses for this box!

Products:  Tim Holtz, Crafter's Workshop, Dr. ph Martin, Stampa Rosa, Post Modern Design
