Just entering the challenge over on eclectic paperie. I have used an HSBC envelope inside and out to make a quick card. As I didn't want to hide the stunning patterns I have kept it simple. Get on over and visit all the wonderful blogs.

Wings and things

Wings and things
Vintage Stamping Challenge.
Just realised it is the last day for " Wings and Things" challenge over on  Vintage Stamping Challenge.
This is an altered white Dior box inspired by my good friend Toni (Artistic craft dabbler). The method was actually quite easy to do. I embossed sticky-backed silver tape (from the local hardware store) and stuck it all over the box. the embossing folder is a Tim Holtz riveted metal texture fade. I then distressed it with alcohol inks and rubbed it back a bit. The corners are grunge paper circles distressed and folded. the rivets are paperclips minus the butterflies on the back. The hot air balloon was stamped, coloured with distress inks covered in glossy accents. The label was stamped and distressed in the same way and the wings were distressed with frantage.
