Things with Wings at Fashionable Stamping Challenges

Good morning folks, its challenge time at Fashionable Stamping challenges and our theme for the next two weeks is Things with Wings'. Don't forget to be eligible for the prize (a generous $20 voucher from Flonzcraft!) you need to use rubber or clear stamps as digis aren't allowed!

I've altered a little wooden box, I'd started making a pair of these months ago but never finished this one so I set to with my Stampbord to finish it off.

I used stamps from Premium Art Brands and PanPastels to create my background and added some texture with a chicken wire stencil and Maimeri Glassy Gel. I added some more stamping with memento inks and then gold embossed the edges of all the pieces. The butterfly was made by stamping the butterfly on acetate and embossing with WOW white pearl EP and then applying Pearlescent Red PanPastel over the top. I added some pearls to the centre of the butterfly. The catch and feet of the box are from Crafty Individuals.

I'm entering this project in the following challenges:
Altered Eclectics: anything goes
Aud Sentiments: things with wings plus a sentiment
Craft for the Craic: things with wings
Crafty Calendar: things with wings
Creatalicious: embossing
Frilly and Funkie: stencil mania
Open Minded: Shabby Chic
Rhed's Creative Spirit: anything goes
