This is week two of the fortnight challenge with Smudgy Antics.
The challenge this round was to alter a box.
Here is my take on the challenge:
I went to town with Modpodge and papers from Creative Imaginations. I love this paper line and stocked up on a bunch of these papers when my favorite scrapbook store went out of business. I've decorated coffins and pretty much everything with this set.
I started with a wooden box from Michael's, took off the hardware, and painted the edges and the bottom of the box black. When the paint dried I covered the inside and outside of the box with two different papers. I used a nail to mark where the hardware needed to go to make reassembly easier. Of course, after sealing and allowing everything to dry, I assembled the box.
The stamp I used is "Holding Heart" from Smeared Ink's "Bloody Valentine" digital stamp set. I colored the image in photoshop, printed it several times, fussy cut the images and layered them with silicone glue for dimension. I used diamond glaze to add a bit of shine and to seal the image to prevent ink run off if it got wet. I simply adhered the dimensional accent with hot glue.
Head on over to the Smudgy Antics blog for more inspiration from the remainder of the DT.
Thanks for looking!
