I chose Feathers

My image is a smeared ink image you can find at http://www.smearedink.com/
The Venice Digi set..I printed the mask 8x 10 and colored with one of my first Prismacolor markers I have ever owned  Mahogany Red and I used my studio G glitter (black) and Tim Holtz Black diamond.. I put two coats on the black areas with the glitter. It took about two hours to completely dry I did not use a heat tool.

A mask was a new idea and something I have only made one before...and it was dangerously flimsy with out adding the feathers  so I asked My fellow DT friends how would they do this...LB is such a awesome friend and artist (her blog is on my side bar in one of my older hops)..she instructed me to skan and print out a duplicate of what I had made and the glue the feathers on black paper with a hot glue gun... so basically ther…

Hi and welcome to lily and the lotus.blogspot.com...I am on a rampage to use my scraps...I love scraps and can't bring myself to throw them away soooo here I go on a rant about scraps.
What compels me to keep them? who knows I often tell myself all the wondrous things I plan on doing with them and yet they pile up...so I have made myself realize i am over flowing and I cannot have newer scraps until I get rid of the older ones...well we shall see how it works.
This card is for sharon a friend of mine at smeared ink...and she had sent me a awesome copy of her challenge piece for http://smearedandsmudged.ning.com/group/thechallenger/forum/topics/rock-n-rolla-challenge-may-1

Welcome to Lily and the Lotus.blogspot.com
and Smudgy Antics new challenge a altered box.

I found a small box at a thrift store yesterday a sickly lavender probably about ten years old. Paid a dollar for it.
I started with the bottom of the box and painted with black acrylic and then covered it with duncan acrylic rose gloss
I used a rose stamp with staz in jet black ink and stamped the bottom and let dry.
 I then painted the roses with Tim Holtz Distress ink Barn Door..I let dry and covered in crackle fired brick and then painted again.
I I then covered with Ranger glossy accents and then used a heat gun to add  UTEE giving it a old worn effect. The feet are Tim Holtz ideology. I used Harlequin lace and black ric rac ,pink Dresden lace I painted acrylic black a skull adhesive embellishment on both sides. I then added a chain using Tim Holtz ideology parts and made bead drops to add to the chain around the entire box.

I took rose tissue paper and tore it into pieces glued them into th…
