Altered box


Altered Packaging box
Hello Friends,I have an altered box to share with you all.

Altered Packaging box side  using Lablanche stamp
Started by creating the background by using Heidi Swap teal mist on glossy cardstock. After it dried applied distress inks (Peacock feathers ,scattered straw,mustard seed) through various stencils(harlequin,triangles,square,hexagon).

Then stamped the numbers using rubber stamp randomly.Made the panels by cutting the cardstock according to the box size.

Background created with mist,stencil and inks

Stamped the images using various rubber stamps(Tim holtz blueprint sketch,LaBlanche stamp) and Archival ink on panels.Colored them loosely with acrylic colors.

 Wrote quotes/words related to "Dream" and some more writing on the background.
 Used a stencil (Imaginarium : Peacock feather) to draw the butterfly and made dots pattern with black marker.

Let me show the original packaging box

I also decorated the inside of the box.

I have written sentiments on my cards many times but Thanks to Lessology's current challenge ,I realized having good handwriting is not enough , The size n fonts matter too. Now that the box is done ,I think the words should be smaller and I should have mixed some fonts n sizes too.What do you think ?

  3. AWESOME!! What a splendid creation!
    I think you've used your fonts well - missing together small and capital letters is a good mix too, don't you think? :)
