Grungey Monday Alcohol Ink Challenge

I've had a great week updating my blog. Thanks to everyone for the very encouraging comments. Here is my entry for this weeks Grungey Monday Challenge. It's a little gift box made from an acetate sheet which I cut using my pazzles machine. It's coloured with red pepper and wild plum alcohol ink. I've used Tims technique from his August 2008 challenge.I've stamped it with various butterflies and flourishes from an Artemio set of stamps. I made the flower using the Tattered Florals die.It's also cut from acetate and backed with sticky backed foil tape this made it a little more flexible and I was able to curl the petals.
I added the butterfly after over stamping an off cut of the acetate, with an Artemio stamp and cutting it out by hand. I quite enjoyed experimenting with this technique, though I did wipe it all off and start again after my first try!
