Distressed Butterfly and Tim Holtz 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!
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
The Stamp Man Challenge: Anything by Tim Holtz
Stampin' for the Weekend: Wings and Things
C.R.A.F.T Challenge: Butterflies
Sir Stampalot Challenge: Anything Goes
Thank you for looking and or your comments, I really appreciate them-they make my day! :-)
