Amanita Box (Fairy Tale Challenge #112)

Happy Friday everyone :-D

It´s time for a new challenge at Fairy Tale Challenge Blog.

Theme for this fortnight is #112 Kraft Paper.

This time our lucky winner will win a Fab Foil for making a metallic shimmer on crafting projects, from our dear sponsor WOW Embossing Powders

Amanita Box is my project for this challenge.

I decorated a small Kraft cardboard box with a lid I had in my stash for a couple of years. 

I cut out rectangles and stripes from red/white polka dot scraps (Crafters Companion Bebunni Christmas Designer Paper Pad). I distressed edges with Tim Holtz´s Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy and glued them on the box and lid with universal glue
Then I made decorations from Kraft paper bag.
I stamped mushrooms from  Paper Smooches 'Forest Whimsy' stamp set on Kraft paper bag, colored them with colored pencils and universal white pencil, fussy cut them and colored edges with black permanent pen. Amanita mushrooms were finished! :-D
I also punched out 12 1" scalloped circles from Kraft paper bag. 

I decorated corners of the box and lid with scalloped circles, and sides with Amanitas. I did this in découpage technique, using fine brush and découpage glue and varnish. After drying, I coated whole box and lid (inside and outside) three times with découpage glue and varnish.

After the box and lid were dry, I added transparent thick coat of varnish on Amanitas´s dots to pop them up and to create glossy accents
