Insect Specimen box

This months challenge theme at the Artistic Stamper's creative team blog, is "the natural world". 

I have made a museum specimen beetle in an authentic museum specimen box (they had been thrown out from the Edinburgh natural history museum.). I used the "insects and butterfly stamp set from" HERE. I stamped the beetle out five times and painted it with Perfect pearls HERE.
I layered it up in sections, curving it as I went to try and make it 3D.  Finally it was coated in UTEE. The label is from the chit chat stickers.  You can pin him to your lapel or glue a brooch pin on the back if you like.


  1. OMG, this is beyond clever!!!! Unbelievable piece quite apart from just having the idea in the first place! STUNNING!!!!

  2. Saw this at the Artistic Stampers site and had to stop by to tell you: this is sooo cleverly and well done and truly gorgeously amazing!!! Love it so much!!!!
