Back to Explosion Box - Black & Red

Hello folks,

Good to be back to blogging. Today's post is an explosion box. With the pics first

The Box

Top View

Usually my style is to jus go with 2 contrast colours, this time i tried using beautiful pp and mix matched them. I am not perfect with heat embossing so i tried it in this project. Infact used a lotta heat embossing.
You see the butterfly... lets take a closer look,

It is a paper pierced Butterfly from the same pp. I drew Small lines with Emboss It pen and heat embossed it with gold Glitter Wow powder. Then finally added glossy accent for the finish. Loved doing it. My own lil embellishment

Shaker element on Box lid

Gift Box Centre

This box was for a wedding, For a watch to be kept in the centre as a gift. So i used all golden yellow where ever possible to make it grand. The red card stock base is fully stamped with script stamp in shadow ink.(Visible in the nxt couple of pics) Usually photographs cover the bulk of panels, but here i worked on all panels.

All Sentiments are Gold embossed. Finally got the hang of it. I cudnt stop myself from heat embossing everything. See the bird cage and the butterflies in it. I punched a couple of butterflies from back card stock, drew designs with Emboss It pen and heat embossed with gold. 

So that's it. Hope u enjoyed taking a look here. I positively enjoyed heat embossing. 
Thanks for stopping by,

I was inspired by all the gold and glitter in the moodboard, also the flowers, diecut and the tiny beads which i have used in the shaker element.
