    Unfortunately this is not my cup of tea, because I love the steampunkt and Halloweencolors.
    Still love the stencil and the feet you used.

    Eeeeeppp!!! This Halloween tag is nothing short of BOO-tiful!!! I love all the frightfully fantastic texture and layers!!! Such fun! :D Tiffany's talents are delightful to watch and give me the boost I need to try some new things artistically!! Thanks so much for the great inspiration!!!

  • Linsey on Graphic 45 Blog Hop Day 3 with Jen

    What a spectacular masterpiece!!! Every detail involves a technique I'm dying to try now!!! Seriously, I'm drooling on my keyboard right now, mulling over every beautimous nook and cranny of this marvelous box!!! What an absolute delight to have the opportunity to witness such awesome artistic inspiration!!! Thank you SO much!!! :D

  • Linsey on Graphic 45 blog hop day 4 with Rita

    What a brilliantly charming creation!!! I love how Rita created that most wonderful texture with her Whipped Spackle and cool stencil design! Then painted with those scrumptious Gelatos and addition of real metal feet, this piece takes on the look of something much more fabulous than that of mere cardboard!!! I mean, WOW!!! The victorian Gilded Lily collection is absolute perfection to coordinate with the box and makes for a stunning little work of art!!! Rita has worked her magic and super-inspiration again!! :D Thanks for never disappointing!!!
