Hello there, and welcome to my first Design Team post for Eclectic Ellapu

This months challenge for the purple team was Christmas - but not a card.

I chose a small paper mache box to jazz up.
I painted the box on the inside and out with IndigoBlu Gee-Sso Good White Gesso and left to dry.

I then sprayed the whole box with IndigoBlu English Cottage Artist Acrylic Paint using Grandma's Teacup which is a lovely pastel blue colour. I sprayed it all over the box and let it run over the surface. I didn't want a perfect painted look to it, just a patchy area of colour. 

I then stamped IndigoBlu Snowflake Lace on to white cosmetic tissue using Versafine ink. I attached the tissue using IndigoBlu Slap It On Matte Medium

I made the snowflake embellishment by pouring melted UTEE in to a silicon snowflake cake mould. I covered it with FlitterGlu and IndigoBlu Morris Dance Mega Flakes. I then swiped the FlitterGlu along the edge of the box lid and added the flakes.

Thanks for popping by, toodles for now...
