Journey box

Last weeks challenge at Haunted Design House was titled "Freakin Free For All!". Now doesn't that sound fun? And I am sure it would have been had I played along. But nooooo !!! I choose to lay around the house, gasp for air and whine about being tired. I tell ya it is all about the choices we make.
This week the challenge is Grim gift boxes that had a least one flower. Although this is not to terribly dark or grim, IT IS FINISHED!!!!
I am very please with this flower. This is made from 3 different dollar store flowers that I have torn apart. The flowers started out as red, pink and bright white. I used walnut ink antiquing spray, Color box chalk ink and Perfect pearls in water to accomplish this. Each layer is stamped, sprayed, inked, mussed and fussed to perfection.

I am now going to head off to lay down again, sorry but I am just so darn weak these days.

till next time, the Oz
