Tuesday Taggers - Mess

Over on Tuesday Taggers this week the theme is getting messy! Here's a project I made which I did get messy with but forgot to take pictures of my hands! Its an exploding box with flying btterflies! My pal Midnight Crafter gave me a tutorial (check out her boxes on her blog - wow!)
Ive used adirondack dye inks, stampin up card stock and stamps, the butterflys are made from fantasy film and put onto thin strips of acetate so they look as if they are flying when you take the lid off the box.

The roses are punched out of a 6 petal flower punch then followed the many tutorials on the net for this. Ive given them a spray with mica spray made from Mustard sed re-inker and gold mics powder so they shimmer which you cant see on the pics. This particular box is a commission for Barbara at work for her MILs 80th.
Hop on over to Tuesday Taggers to see some truly awesome work. My fellow design team buddies are such a pleasure to work with and really blow me away every week with their fabulous stuff. Thanks Guys x
