WOW! Embossing Powder - Altered Memory Box

Hi!! Today I have an inspiration project for this month's WOW! Embossing challenge, which is Altered or Recycled Art.  

I altered a papier mach√© circle box to make a Memory Box - perfect for childhood keepsakes. 

First I painted the box with white acrylic paint using a baby wipe to achieve a distressed look. While that dried I made some resin flowers using Melt-It, White Pearl Powder and Pomegranate Powder. To make the flowers I use foil cases, a peg to hold the foil case (it gets hot!!) and my heat gun. 

Once the paint had dried I covered the box with patterned papers, sanding the edges. Then I layered up an inked bingo card with leaves which I'd heat embossed with Olive embossing powder. I stamped out the little girl from the Child's Play clear stamp set. 

I then layered up the flowers before adding some green velvet ribbon and some white peals . 

WOW Products used:
Stamps - Child's Play (Retired)

This is stunning Sandie!! Love the design. Also love the flowers - I bought some of the powders and moulds at Ally Pally last week and am absolutely hooked (and have a blister to prove it!). I'm just trying to hunt down some more moulds so would be grateful if you know of any good ones! Hugs, Juliexx
