More mixed media challenge 6: anything goes + optional colour purple

This is my design project for More mixed media challenge: anything goes + optional colour purple. Please click on the link to see the fantastic creations of the rest of the team and to read what the challenge is all about - we hope you will join in.

I altered a box that had contained an Easter egg (and very delicious it was - huge big egg with lots of chocs inside!). The box was too good to throw away and when I saw the piece of lilac/purple already on the box I decided this would be my purple project. Purple is my favourite crafting colour, so I loved putting this together.

I used urple acrylic paint, brushing and then daubing the paint, drying with the heat gun in between, adding flowers and ribbon from Lozzy and a felt bird:

I added a band of glittered paper to the rim of the lid, adding some Papermania flowers both sides and the felt bird on the top:
