Wish Granted: Stampbord - Day two

How are you all today? 
So... tempted to try (or dig out) Stampbord yet? 
Well, I hope that Chris' project today will inspire you as much as Gio's yesterday. 
Chris chose to alter a little wooden box with the lovely PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paints and top it up with stamped and coloured Stampbord... 
Check this out...

The box was painted with Fresco Finish paint in Pansy and stamped with parts of the Katzelkraft Frame 01 stamp using Black Archival ink then coloured with Coloursoft pencils. The large stampbord tile was sponged with distress inks Dusty Concord and Shabby Shutters and then stamped with the Katzelkraft stamp. Colouring was done with the coloursoft pencils and then the Scratch tool was used for highlights.
The large tile and the box were coated in multi matte medium and the smaller tile sprayed with the spray sealer.
Glossy accents was applied to the flowers, stems and leaves on the box and tiles and allowed to dry before adding to the box lid together with the self-adhesive pearl.

Distress inks dusty concord, shabby shutters, black soot
Fresco Finish chalk paint pansy

Thank you Chris for this beautiful altered box.
Tomorrow we will be back with Neil who used Stampbord on a note book cover.
