Dead Orchids Altered Box

Hello, everyone!
I am finally back from my break and with the new post. YAY for me! I am here with a new Altered Box.

I painted the entire box with Distress Paint in Brushed Corduroy and then covered the lid using a paper by Recollections Tattered and Worn Cardstock Paper Pad. I distressed the paper with my all-time to-go Distress Ink in Vintage Photo. Then I sprayed some using Prima Marketing Color Bloom spray in Empress Gold and Heidi Swapp spray in Amethyst.

Next, I assembled some embellishments (FAV part). I Found a KEY in my stash (I am sorry I have no idea who’s it is) which I painted using Distress Paint in Dusty Concord and Dusty Attic‘s Gears in Tarnished Brass. I liked how it gave me a shimmery effect. Then took out some lace which I got from my home country Pakistan 3 years ago (OOPS!) and some metal embellishments which I bought from Micheals except the vintage looking frame and roman number which are by Tim Holtz. Flowers are by Prima Marketing from their collection ‘Tales of You & Me’ and also the small bulb that reads out ‘cute’. I have been saving this pack since FOREVER – literally. In the end, I felt something was still missing so I added a lacey twine on the side of the lid. It gave a box instant wear-off look which was very much needed.

This is it for now – I hope you like the post. Do leave some love below!

See you next time!
