MONDAY - TUESDAY - WEDNESDAY - THURSDAY
For the final day of hopping around the world I decided to play with the new DecoArt
Antiquing Creams and a lot of Stampendous embossing powders, tinsel and mica flakes.
I altered a cardboard box using DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics and Black Antiquing cream.
Antiquing Cream on the flowers to add to the distressed look.
And of course... I use the box for storing my embossing powders.
I covered the cardboard box with cardstock embossed in an embossing folder.
First I primed the embossed cardstock with Matte Medium and then painted
it with Media Fluid Acrylic Metallic Gold.
I applied some Stampendous embossing powder Aged Gold to the edge of the lid.
I covered the whole thing with black Antiquing Cream and let it dry. Then I used a
damp cloth to wipe the Antiquing Cream back. The Antiquing creams dries but it
doesn't cure so you have unlimited working time and if you don't like the result...
just wipe it all off and start over and when you get the result you want seal with a
Media Varnish. I sealed it with DecoArt Media Satin Varnish.
The flowers gave me the perfect opportunity to experiment with a lot of embossing
powders, mica flakes and tinsels....and I did!! A lot of different powders on the petals.
A brad in the middle to hold them together.
