Altered box

I went to a workshop with Ali-Crafts yesterday and we did an altered box, there was so many things to play with that you could get carried away putting things on. I have never done one of these before but I will be doing some more as they are great fun to do and would make fab gifts.
The boxes were base painted then stamped with a wood effect stamp, we just went for it with all the embellishments and then painted over with a metallic paint and finished off with Treasure Gold wax.
This box has a drawer and we lined the draw with patterened paper which matches the paper I put onto the tag.

CD Sunday - Travels Abroad

This week over on CD Sunday Christine has chosen the topic of Travels Abroad, now as first I didn't have a clue but did think maybe a scrapbook page, decided you didn't want to be subjected to my ugly mush so went with a retirement card instead.

This card looks very simple and plain and yes it is but the embossed mat has been coloured with Treasure Gold wax, I used several colours to get the effect and it doesn't really show in the picture, it is a blend of five wax colours and took quite a while to get the effect I was looking for. I bought one pot at the Port Sunlight stamp show but very soon had to add to that and now I have five pots with still more to come at some point, I just love it.

I do hope you will join us support our guest Wynn who has produced another cracker this week.
