Pandora's Box

The challenge at Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls is to alter a box, and creep it up.  My contribution began like this

Rather plain isn't it?  I grabbed my mica powders and mixed up some of the Scarab Beetle with glaze to paint the box.  The fastener got special treatment.  I mixed the Solar Gold mica powder with glaze for painting it. 


I stamped the box and fastener with the bonus image in The Eyes of Beauty Collection.  This really is a great image.





I then inked up all the edges to give it a more aged look.



To be certain it was appropriately creepy, I went with the idea of the Pandora's Box.  The outside, giving no clue to the contents inside.  Truly a dead man's chest filled with the bones of previous treasure hunters and the treasure they were seeking.

Can hardly wait to see your creation!  Be certain to play along with Beyond the Burtonesque Dolls.

Get Inky!
