Its my turn on the Unruly paper arts blog today. To see the blog click the link Here
I gave it a coat of Sky fresco finish paint, I used this as it reacts well with the Picket fence distress stain which I gave it a coat of when the paint was dry.
I then sealed it with a coat of matt medium. I then stamped directly onto the box using an archival ink and masking the images as I went. When this was all dry I dragged a black acrylic dabber around the edges to give it a bit of definition.
Finishing it off with an old vintage button as a faux knob and a fleur-de-lys charm on the front.
This is a very quick little box to decorate and makes a great gift.
The stamps I have used are from Artistic Outpost, and are available from the site here
I have removed the link for unruley paperarts as it looks as it there is a temporary problem with the site and it is giving a virus warning.
