altered canvas

This canvas was altered using alcohol inks. I used blue and purple and sprayed from a distance and close up !. The fabric flowers (daisy's) were also sprayed with the ink. Some wood effect "branches" were added along with rainbow pearls for the centre flowers. The birdcage was a die which I die cut several times to create the 3d effect. The large butterfly was already glittered but I added tiny seed beads (intended for nail decoration) down the centre. Some silver leaf was added here and there to finish. Thanks for stopping by. xx

altered match box

Hello everyone. I altered this matchbox (I got a set of these in my Christmas gifts)by first applying gesso. I then covered with paper and inked all my edges. A pretty cameo was placed in the centre of the box (I raised it up slightly using silicone gel) The centre of the outer box was cut and rolled slightly to expose the cameo. The butterflies and flower were die cut using mulberry paper. I inked this lightly with a chalk ink pad ,added tiny beads to the centre of the flower. Ribbon (lace effect) in two colours was added around the bottom. I then placed a pearl dangling from the underside. To complete I added a chain to the top to allow the box to be hung.
