Number '8' Altered Slide Mailer

Here is a double slide mailer, (4inches x 3inches) that I have altered. The slide mailer was covered with gold leaf on the outside and decorated on the inside. The front panel was made separately with board and distress inks with a central panel rubber stamped and heat embossed with marquesite EP. Three gold beads were added with glossy accents and two die cut flowers, painted first in copper acrylic paint with glitter glue added and wrapped with copper craft wire.

The inside front was covered with printed paper (basic grey) and a roman sculpture image (Crafty Individuals) was added before sealing with mod podge matt. This was then overstamped with a swirl border stamp in black Stazon and the word 'Treasure' in black cherry Stazon. The other side was coloured with Adirondak raisin ink and overstamped again with the swirl border and black stazon.

I have not yet completed the slides and will put these on the blog when complete.
