Dreadfully Wicked Halloween Box

 Welcome back, everyone! I'm back just in time to share a new Halloween creation. Halloween is always my favorite holiday for making dimensional projects. Available supplies that I've used are linked at the end of the post.

I started this project with a little wooden chest from Joann's by the company Park Lane. I first coated the box with some chunky layers of Resin Sand by Liquitex. This gives the box that old grimy graveyard feel. Once dried, I spritzed all over with the new Distress Mica Spray in "Empty Tomb" and "Crooked Broomstick". Now it's time to add all the bits!

I just bought this darling new Stamper's Anonymous Pumpkinhead stamp set, so I knew I wanted to incorporate them somehow! I heat embossed the pumpkins on Strathmore Mixed Media paper using black embossing powder (the powder I used isn't sold anymore! any black embossing powder will do). I then sprayed them with Distress Mica Spray in "Jack O Lantern" and "Flickering Candle" and fussy cut the images with my Cutter Bee scissors. I also sprayed a decorative flower with the same Mica Sprays.

Next I colored a lot of bits in this green alcohol ink. I colored the Salvaged Doll, skull medallion, plastic clear beads, an Industrial Sticker, and the 'dreadfully wicked' baseboard all using the same color.

I used orange alcohol ink to color the Corked Vial and the poison baseboard piece. The mini tree was sprayed with Distress Black Soot stain and I sprinkled orange glitter on top. Now it was time to get out the hot glue gun and start assembling!

 Thanks for coming back! Happy creating!
