Chocolate Orange Box

Good morning my lovelies, I've been playing with Kroma Crackle again, I think i'm addicted to this stuff lol. This months challenge at Indigo Blu is  Chocolate Orange, well I adore Chocolate Oranges but its not a colour combination I often use in my crafting but I couldn't resist having a play.

I took a little wooden box and painted it with brown acrylic paint and sealed it with Maimeri Gloss Medium, sanded it a wee bit for a distressed look and then edged with some treasure gold. I coloured some Kroma Crackle with orange acrylic paint and spread it over some brown card. Once it was dry, I sealed it and  used it to cover the box

The butterfly is an Indigo Blu Dinkie stamp, I stamped on vellum with Flitter glu and applied Autumn Blaze gilding flakes. I cut the butterfly out and then used a little ball tool to add some texture to the butterfly wings. I coloured some little pearls with my Graph'It markers and used them for the butterfly's body.

I'm also entering this in the following challenges:
4 Crafty Chicks: anything but a card
Crafting for all Seasons: Autumn colours
Crafty Creations: Autumn Colours
Docerela Creations: Brown and orange
Wags'n'Whiskers: Fall colours

Well as usual I'm scooting off to work so have a good day and thanks for popping by
