altered heart box using transparent beads

this is my take on the June Tutorial at Artzdescrap on Altered Tin Can. I used a Heart box and covered it with pattern paper. no modge podge used.

I also punched holes on the edges of the cover with Crop a Dile.

this is the transparent beads i used on the chipboard accent. how did i go about it?

1. i used the Cosmo Cricket blackboard chipboard. i sanded the edge and inked it.
2. leaf pen was used to outline.
3. i then used sepia accent and sprinkled PEARL EX powders and TRANSPARENT BEADS to create a rather distressed and soot-like look. so much for a flower accent huh.

here, i just used tacky glue so that basically, everything is just transparent with a dash of Radiant Rain iridescent green which is not so visible.

by the way, the transparent beads and heart box were given to me by Jill Lim.
