Bombshell Stamps x3

The latest challenge on the Bombshell Stamps forum and blog is set by Miss March and is called 'x3' which means using 3 of their wonderful stamps on your project.  Now I have gone a little over the limit and decided to move away from my usual love of tags this month, I hope I still qualify for the challenge.

I started with a paper mache heart shaped box which I painted with the Ranger adirondack snow cap acrylic paint. Next I stamped the outside of the box and the lid plus the 3 skulls, sentiment and flower onto white card stock.  I edged the box, the sentiment and flowers with Tim Holtz barn door distress ink and then covered each piece with the Tim Holtz rock candy distress paint.  I shaped the word banner and the flowers a little to give them depth and once dry I attached the flowers and sentiment to the top of the box.  I coloured the 3 skulls with Letraset promarkers and attached them to the inside of the box using strips of acetate.
Thanks for looking!
