Butterfly Charms Sneak Peek

You may have seen this box on display in Vegas or on the Stampendous Blog but it's the first time I have shared it on my blog!

I created this box for a catalog sample for the new Butterfly Charms Perfectly Clear Stamp set by Stampendous. I just love how it turned out!

It started as a brown paper mache box.
I painted it, stamped it, decoupaged it, and finished it off with a little glitter and embossing.

I started by painting the box with Robin's Egg Blue acrylic paint.
Then I sponged on Tim Holtz Distress Ink to age it a little.
I stamped the postage images on the box with memento ink.

I stamped the butterflies on tissue paper with memento ink and colored them with Copic markers.
Then I cut out the butterflies and adhered them with Beacon Fast Finish.

For a final touch I sprinkled Chunky White Embossing Enamel, Aged Gold Embossing Enamel, and Gold Halo Glitter Mix and heated it from underneath until it melted.
