The background is a wash of Pearl Violet Lumiere and Warm White Jo Sonja paints.
The microscope slide was stamped using black StaZon.
The gold trim around the microscope slide is gold tape available at lead
lighting shops. The background in the microscope slide is acetate
(same as wings on cover). Alphabet letters cast from Sculpey Ultra Light and painted with Lumiere Magenta,
the heart was cast with Makin's clay and painted with Lumiere Magenta. Both
the Letters and Script were highlighted using a gold Krylon pen.
The script was cast with a mix of a very small portion of Red and lots of Metallic
Sculpey III, I applied gold Pearl Ex to the casting and then removed from the top of the script.
Sayings were stamped on vellum and adhered to the background with the 3M Vellum tape.
The skeleton leaf was painted with
Pearl Violet Lumiere. When I finished painting the box I removed the excess paint
from the paintbrushes onto
some scrap paper, that's the paper I used to stamp the Leonardo women onto.
All images were stamped using Brilliance Victorian Violet.

The skeleton leaf was painted with Pearl Magenta Lumiere, the word “goddess'stamped onto acetate and mounted on a domino, then a metal frame aged with black patina and
affixed to the top of the acetate. The Fleur de Lys was cast from a mix of White and
Translucent Sculpey III.
Side view (both sides)
AM149 Lge Clover
The Clovers were cast from Delight clay, and painted with the Pearl Magenta and
Pearl Violet Lumiere paints. I often dilute the paints with some Jo Sonja Pearl
White when I find the colours too intense. The paint for the background is
stippled on with a paintbrush, this gives it texture. Play with paint tones
using the Pearl White paint for extra depth and texture.
The left side of the inside
AM111 XLge Maysie's Key
AM179 X4Lge Lock 1

Violet Lumiere. The casts were painted with the Magenta, and they were
highlighted with Jo Sonja Pale cold paint, applied with a fairly dry brush.
