Hello! It’s the 3rd Tuesday of the month, so it’s time for another Altered Challenge for the Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls! This time around, I wanted to challenge everyone to create Pandora’s Box. Well, ok. You don’t have to go and read any Greek mythology (though there is a bit posted on the Dolls’ Blog), but I want you to make or alter a box. And creep it out. You know the drill!
So I have a bunch of coffins that I snagged super cheap, and I had yet to use one. So, I figured this was as good an opportunity as any! Here’s what I did.
It was pretty simple, but just creepy enough. I painted it all black, then I attacked it with Marigold Distress Crackle paint. After it dried and got nice and crackly, I went over it with Gathered Twig and Vintage Photo Distress Ink to age it further and dull down the color.
Then, I took some beautiful spiderweb stamps from Basic Grey and embossed them in a Platinum color. Silver would have been way to bright. The platinum was just dull enough. I embossed them all over the box, as you can see.
Isn’t that an awesome web? I hope you play along with us. You have 2 weeks to join in. Please be sure to visit the rest of the Dolls to see what their altered boxes look like. Visit the Dolls’ Blog HERE.
I am entering my coffin into this week’s Smudgy Antics challenge. It’s a Bingo challenge, and I went diagonal. I used black, embossing and paint. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
