Paris Exposition Vanity Box For Happy Daze


This Box is for the happy Daze Design Team Blog
I have used the Artistic Outpost stamps Paris Exposition and French Flight to alter this Box. The Box is one of the Vanity Boxes available from the shop.
The background has been created by using a crackle paint background, I found the blue was too bright when this was done, so I applied a coat of Picket Fence distress stain which gave it a lovely aged look.
Viva Inka Gold in Hematite was applied through a crafters Workshop Stencil.
All the stamping was done using black archival ink.
Acrylic fragments and arrows were added to the lid.

The challenge this month is "March To Your Own Tune" use anything musical. For full details of the challenge have a look HERE

Awesome. I have just looked to see if it's on your Folksy - but it's not - so I have visited the shop and spent £70+ and included was the set of boxes.

Can you tell that an impulsive person - and I haven't a clue why I bought stamps cos I don't use them - but you have inspired me to have a go.
