Altered tin and matching slide mailer

I quite like this set even though it is pink lol.
This is the first decent thing i have made since october. So pleased to have my mojo back.

Appologies for the fuzzy scan of the inside of the box the writting says oh so sweet. I glazed it with Anits 3d gloss glaze, the fairy pic i double embossed with clear powder. I put pink stars in both the 3d gaze and the pearl glitter glue.

I used acrylic paint in shades of pink to paint both the slide mailer and tin, then i used my Adirondack salmon dabber to give a dappled effect . I used alcohol inks on the metal letter circles (cranberry, wild plum and currant) then i went over the raised letters with a metalic pink permenant pen.

I think the outside of the box and the slide mailer are self explanitory as i just added ready made embellishments.

For the inside of the slide mailer i put pebble/bubble stickers over pink letters, mounted it on pink paper then onto the mailer. I cut a picture to size put it in the recess filled the gaps with glitter glue added some starts then filled the void with 3d gloss glaze.

Hope what i've written makes sense.
