|A tiny little matchbox sized keepsake box. I found this really challenging because the piece is so small and I wanted to pack it full of techniques - well, some techniques at least!|
|These are the products I used from Stampendous and DecoArt to create my little box - for some reason, I forgot to take photos as I went along this time!|
I used the bottom two stamps from the pack for my box - that means I have one more to play with! If you look carefully, you can also see the free stencil in the pack - still with dried paint on I'm afraid!
|The box is diecut using a piece of card which has a monoprint added from the Stampendous plate. The monoprint was made using DecoArt Media range acrylics (as previously shown).|
Top and back view shown.
|The mono print can clearly be seen here in the background. The circles were altered using either a black pencil or some DecoArt Media range Quinacridone Gold paint. Machine stitching was added around the larger circles. Finally a coat of DecoArt Crackle Glaze to finish.|
The tiny flowers are punched from scraps of the print, crackle glazed then rubbed with carbon black paint. Tiny black gems complete the flowers.
|The free stencil was again put to good use for applying the embossing powder. Versamark ink was applied through the stencil followed by the embossing powder. Gently heated from below then a final coat of crackle glaze was applied as before.|
|The jute string was tied in a knot at the front of the box. The rusty wire extends from the ends of the sting and some curl was added to them to complete the look.|
What would you keep in your little keepsake box?
