Good afternoon everyone, I hope you are well :-) I found some awesome unfinished wooden boxes in a cheap store the other day. I decided to have a play with the butterfly stamps and Tim Holtz stamps I hadnt had a chance to use yet to make a distressed gift box.
I began by covering the box in a thin base coat of pearlescent blue acrylic paint. I left this to dry. Next I covered the box in Crackle Glaze and let it dry. I then painted a thin layer of 'Sand' acrylic paint as my top coat. I then left this to dry and crackle.
Lastly I used my Tim Holtz and Butterfly stamps and randomly stamped over it using Stazon black ink. I tried to get the effect of distressing by unevenly applying the ink on the stamps too.
I hope you like it!
