Altered box




Well this is my project that i have been playing with today, altering a box. I covered box with white acrylic paint and then used chipped sapphire distress ink on the edges.covered bottom of box with midnight blue cosmic shimmer mist,love this stuff.inked words around the edge of box lid and added distress crackle paint to lid and used chipped sapphire to highlight cracks.stamped images onto stampboard and then crackled and distressed.I used sunlight mist and midnight blue cosmic shimmer on flowers and stuck to lid. Have got really messy but enjoyed making this.

  2. Hi, I love this - what a great job you've made of the box. Love the ink colours and the stamps (which I think are Inkadinkado inches?) and which I have and never thought to use them this way. As you say messy but fun! Thanks for sharing. ikki
