Take a Box challenge

Samantha Read is the hostess at Stampotique Designers Challenge Blog and her theme is Take a Box. Here's what she had to say about her challenge.
"I think we all throw boxes away so for this weeks challenge I'm inviting you to grab
an empty cardboard box and alter and decorate till your heart's content. I can't wait
to see your boxes, have fun!"
If you'd like the chance to win your choice of $30 worth of Stampotique stamps, you should play along with this challenge. Visit Stampotique Designers Challenge blog and be sure to read the rules so that you'll have the chance to win that great prize!!!  Remember to check to see the deadline for all of this month's Stampotique Designers Challenges!

Peace and Love was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento ink (Tsukineko/Imagine Crafts) onto cardstock and colored with Copic markers.  Peace and Love was stamped again onto Eclipse Tape and fussy-cut. The mask was placed over the image on the cardstock and airbrushed with my Copic Airbrush System. The Sunburst stencil (The Crafter's Workshop) was placed over the masked image and a darker yellow was airbrushed. The image panel was die-cut with a die from the Squares Nestabilities set (Spellbinders). Clear Gelly Glaze pen was added to the buttons on Peace and Love's dress and her crown.

The top, bottom, and sides of both parts of a white department store gift box was painted with Primary Yellow Media Fluid Acrylic (MFA) paint (DecoArt) then Viridian MFA paint was sponged over top. Diarylide Yellow, Pthalo Blue, Quinacridone Red, and Green Gold MFA paints were stippled on with a Rough Stippling Tool (Momenta/Art C). I quite like the look of the box with little splats of color. Unfortunately, I haven't been able to take the box outside for a photo shoot as I've been feeling poorly.

When the paint on the box was dry, Matte Multi Medium (Ranger) was used to adhere the image panel to the top of the box, covering the store's logo. Gold Foil stickers border and corner stickers were used to enhance the box.
