Another Texture Attempt

Fabulous candy give away here.

So here's my second attempt with the texture I spoke of in the last post. I didn't cover as much of the box this time and added some other textural elements. For this box, I painted it completely black first, Mod Podged some pink tissue paper in spots, stamped with a script stamp in white ink, added some tin from a Monster can, then put my texturizing spackle mix on. After it dried I added some pearls, the butterflies, and some gold Stickles. The spackle was still a little to runny, not sure how to fix that but after it dries a bit you can go in and pick up the top to make ridges and peaks. I like the first one but it was a bit over the top for my personal tastes. I like this one much better. Which do you like?




















































Not sure if they allow two entries or not but going to try at AH Designs Challenge Blog.
Also entering this in the CDAC Anything Goes Challenge and the Stamping Shack Love is in the Air challenge.

Love ya,
~Deb~
