More makes,and Alice,taking a nap

Hi guys,well for the last few days I have been playing,with my inks,and things and came up with this steam,punk,vintage box,I have added,inks,paints,etc made the embellishments to add to the sides.
The front of the box,I stamped onto tissue then adhered it to the front of the box.
But before I show you my finshed box,here is Alice after her walk,fast asleep,on the soffa in my craft room along with my teddies.
I have also made another,page for my new journal and played with some,angelina firbres available from the Craft den,link on my side bar.

I have just,added the fibres,trapped some butterflies,underneath,then cut out the rest and added them to the top of the card.

For this page i have just played with my paint,then took some bubble wrap and placed it onto the wet paint,then removed to get that cool background. I have inked the sides with gold,viva ink the flower I have heat embossed with gold embossing powder. I have inked the letters,too.
This is my box,and I have made some inserts,to add things to later.
This is the back of the box
 This is the whole set,
 This is one side of the box
 The other side
 Close up of the flower
 Finally full view of the front
Sorry its a long post,I would also like to thank Nan for adding to my list of followers,thanks hun. Plus a thank you to dear Lorraine for giving me another blog award,thanks hun.
