Wizard of Oz Pencil Box

I love these wooden pencil boxes in the shop and I have altered this one using the Artistic Stamper Wizard of Oz stamps.
I wanted the box to look really battered as if it had been in the tornado with Dorothy, So I first of all gave it a coat of Claudine Hellmuths Dash of Red and when dry I crackled a coat of Tan over the top. When it was dry I then roughly sanded it to give it a very aged look.
The images are all stamped in versfine ink. I have used a backgound stamp to fill in any blank areas, there are a great selection of stamps to choose from in the shop.
I have used gold embossing powder to edge it. I finished it off with a large gold button from my ever growing stash of these.

You never cease to amaze me! You somehow have the talent to turn something ordinary into something extraorindary. This is brilliant. I hope visitors click on your photos to see the exquisite details close up. You really 'do' the crackle finish to perfection.

I could do with some lessons from you!
