That new rubber smell....

Today is the blog hop for 
Smeared Ink's new rubber stamp release!!
Let me tell you, these new stamp sets are pretty awesome!! 
They are available exclusively, as the June featured sets through the 
They will only be released in rubber.
(Click the link above to find out all the details of this exclusive
rubber club.)

My first project features the seahorses from The Abyss set.
I colored them with Copics, fussy cut them out, and adhered them to the
insides of the painted coffin box with gloss medium.

For the lid of the coffin box, I frosted it entirely with modeling paste, and
added some shells and shell fragments. Then it was painted with black gesso. 

After it dried, I added layers of acrylic color to highlight the textures 
of the modeling paste and the shells. Lastly, I added some
Inka Gold Metallic Rub in green/yellow to make it really shine
and pop. 

The entire box received the same treatment.

I'd like to enter this box in the following challenge(s):

My next project features an awesome image from the other
featured set for June called, "Winged Things".

She is gorgeous! Love those lips!

I am really happy with how this card came together. 
I used some KaiserCraft 13th Hour paper for the background,
and there is even a drippy goo edge on the bottom of the image,
to mimic what is dripping off of her wings. But it looks as if it's
hiding from the camera right now. Hmmm....  

I used the Spellbinders Heraldry set, finally. I've had that thing for at least a year or longer.
The winged shield looks perfect backing the Winged Things sentiment. 

Just one more look...
