  1. paint box with black acrylic paint. Cut circle away from lid. 
  2. stamp image in Memento and color with Copics. Cut out image
  3. stamp image again and color black. 
  4. mix black glitter with Fast Finsh and apply to the ground area and lid. 
  5. Spritz background with Shimmer Spritz. 
  6. Adere angel to background with foam adhesive. Trim to fit in box and adhere.
