Heart of Devastatia

Every now and again I like to try my hand at altering.  If you have been on my blog before, you may have seen one of my trinket boxes.  Well I made another one.  I love decorating these.

I'm loving Kenny K at the mo and his digis are featuring on a lot of my projects right now.  I love using intense colours.  They give any project a rich feeling.  This is Devastatia.  I have coloured her in red black and silver.

I have inked the box using Fired Brick distress ink, which I then went over with my heat tool to help set it. You get quite a good effect as you can still see the wood grain.  I might try adding embossing powder too next time.  Heating the ink changed the colour a little, but I still love the effect. I hadn't planned to use so many flowers, but once I got started, I just couldn't stop.

I have edged the top of the box with black velvet ribbon.  I have then edged around the bottom section with black lace and more black velvet ribbon.  I have added deep red gems for a bit of glamour.

 I am entering my trinket box for the following challenges:
