Here is my project.
Globecraft Memories Piccolo Embossing Powders in various colors
Brushed Silver Brad (2)
Scotch Foam Tape
Scissors with a fine tip
There are a lot of steps to this box, so I am just going to hit the highlights. Before I began, I inked the edges of the box. I then adhered the Graphic 45 Le Cirque papers over the whole thing. I noticed that they were brighter and more of a yellowy green than the Steampunk Debutante colors, so I used my Smooch sprays to change them. I sprayed the Navy Twinkle first to make the color more turquoise. I then sprayed the Emerald, which has a little gold in it, to further deepen the green and bring in the gold of the Steampunk flowers. I purposely sprayed close to the box to get the mottled effect. I inked the edges again after I was done spraying.
As you can see, I fancy cut the flowers from the Fantasy Floral Paper, stacked a couple with foam tape for later and glued the rest across the box.
Then, I noticed that the Want2Scrap Nestabling Pearls looked like beautiful frames, so I laid one around the opening in the top of the box. I glittered the area between it and the open square with Ultrafine Transparent Flax. I used transparent to create the illusion of a see through frame while maintaining the details. For this reason, I used transparent for all my glittering. I chose colors that resembled the colors on the paper so that I could enhance them while still seeing those details. I even glittered some of the stars from the Le Cirque Paper in the background. For the woman, I went a step further and used Transparent Microfine to really get in the details. Of course, all of this detail work was done with the Designer Dries Clear Glue and the metal tip to get a really fine line.
