Here is my little box that I would like to enter into the challenge.
For the top of the box I used one of my favourite pieces of CI backing paper. I stamped onto it a little bit to tie it in to the base of the box. I attached the piece of paper with Gel Medium and then applied a couple of coats to protect the surface. I did find that applying the medium with a brayer gave a better finish.
I base coated all of box, inside and out, with one coat of Gesso and then 3 coats of warm white paint, lightly sanding between coats.
I then, using my finger applied the Williamsburg blue paint to the outside edges of all surfaces including the lid. I used my finger and palm of my thumb to blend the paint a little.
I then lightly sanded all of the surfaces.
I randomly stamped the images starting with the script and the postage marks.
I then stamped the yellow leaves. Just randomly and over lapping them in places.
I then stamped the red flowers.
I smudged the little red flowers on the side but you can’t really see it in real life. It does, however, stick out like a bears bum on the photo!
I used plum Archival ink and that does seem to take an age to dry even though I zapped with a heat gun. So one to watch out for.
All images have been stamped using different colours of Archival Ink.
That’s all from me today.
Look forward to seeing what you create for the challenge.
