Mad Hatter Altered Box

Hello, everyone!
I’m back after a LONG long break. Some of you might know it has been quite long since I have blogged. Anyway, so here I come with one of my recent creations. I have given a name Mad Hatter (those of you who don’t know I love giving random names to my projects).

Let’s dig in, shall we?
I got a great deal on a set cardboards, thought of altering one of them recently. It’s approx size is 4.5×4.5″. At first, I covered it with Black acyclic paint from Apple Barrel. Then took a cut piece of a paper from Classique Beauty 12×12″ paper pad by Authentique and distressed it completely using Old Paper and Antique Linen. I then distressed the sides with Vintage Photo (all time favourite!). Next, I stamped some Tim Holtz scripted stamp using Distress Embossing Ink and covered in ‘Heirloom Gold’ Perfect Pearls. Then sprayed using Heidi Swapp ‘Patina’ & ‘Black’ and Prima Marketing ‘Empress Gold’. Afterwards, I used a Dusty Attic stencil and used a Prima Marketing Finnabair texture paste in White Sand. It actually turns transparent so to add a little bit of a colour I dropped in few drop of Brushed Corduroy Distress Paint.

Secondly, went in with the embellishments. ‘Little Story’ and Butterfly wood icons are by Prima Marketing and ‘Sweet’ wood veneer is by Jillibean Soup from their Today pack which I have distressed it with Black Soot Distress Paint. The beautiful layer of clocks is by BoBunny from there Heritage Layered Chipboard pack. Flowers are a mix of Recollection and Prima Marketing & Vintage Trinkets are by Finnabair.

Finally, topped it with some sequins and Recollection flat pearls to give a little bit of a bling.

I truly enjoyed making it. Hope you all like it.
See you soon!
