skull appreciation day hop

Its finally here! Happy Skull Appreciation Day!!! 
today Smeared and Smudged is having a rather large blog hop...full of amazing arts and talents! so I'll try to make this short and sweet so you can get around to all the participants....the list is at the end of this post...eeee have fun I know I will.

So for my offering today I have an altered box to share with you

I took my white box and painted some texture paste on it (thinned down) then I went over that with some purple shimmery paint, then over that with black and while the black was still wet I stamped my fence stamp from Quoth the Raven from Smered Ink all over (dry stamp, just to pick up the black) then I wrapped the top of the box with some purple trim, then I made my cameo with some molds I had ordered from Etsy and painted them black and took some silver rub n buff to them to bring out the details..added some pearl thingies and there it is I just love how it turned out…oh and with the bottom I did the texture stuff then silver for contrast.

Here is the hop list incase you get lost! have fun and leave lots of love
