Altered Gift Box!

Hello to all my wonderful friends!

          Today I altered a cover of the gift box with multi-layer, textures and my own handmade foam flowers in the combo of violet and shades of purple and pinks, as the ultraviolet color is chosen as Pantone color of the Year 2018!

I started with a wooden plank stamp on a white cardstock using distress inks and cut them into strips. 

Then adhered them on a gift box cover panel to create my background.

I used a brick stencil and texture paste and mixed the tiny thermocol balls in it to get the patchy brickwork and then applied white chalk paint over the bricks and spray with pink color.
Now on a corrugated sheet randomly tear it and applied white chalk paint on it.
Stamped some Botanical flower and leave images on vellum sheet and heat embossed them in different colors.

Now time to create my own handmade foam flowers. I die cut some flowers and leaves using Botanical wings die set out of three coloured foam sheet. Applied gently some pastel colors on the die cut flowers. Using my iron, shaped them easily to create these flowers in different sizes and styles as shown in the given pic. Highlighted them with some crystal clear powder and sparkly dots. I roughly placed all the embellishments and flowers on the panel and took a pic. I used some tags from Amor Mio PP.

Now embellished my whole panel using different elements as shown in the pic. And added the MDF Quote- "I am here to be awesome."Here are some more close-ups:
