LeighSBDesigner Val is sharing a fabulous altered box project today featuring images from my new Dark Valentine Collection❤️ Val used the Scratched Hearts and Skull Roses background collages to cover the entire box and then embellished with the Gothic Rose and the "My Dark Valentine" sentiment.
Val went with a classic red, black and white colour palette and coloured just a few of the hearts and roses and edged the lid rim to create a striking and bold effect.
She used red and black embossing pens to colour and applied clear embossing powder to give those areas a wonderful mottled texture too.
Wooden beads coloured with black Sharpie used for the box feet are the perfect finishing touch.
Check out my launch video and see the release post HERE!
