Transfer Artist Paper week:

Neil is with us today with a lovely box he altered by stamping directly on the box and then again on the TAP paper. This way you get the same image in opposite direction. Another advantage when working with TAP paper and stamps. 
Here's how Neil made his sample

I'll be honest; my first attempt was not successful trying to transfer direct onto the box so I had a rethink!
I Stamped the owl onto the box directly and then stamped it onto the TAP paper and transferred this onto Binding cloth which worked a treat and then I adhered it to the box over the bit I'd messed up!
The box was coloured with distress stain and distress ink . 
I stamped some leaves around and used a Tando mask with Inka Gold to add highlights.
I glued a twig onto the box as a perch to which I'd added some old jewellery to finish.

Distress stain - Stormy sky
Distress ink - stormy sky and walnut stain
Inka gold - 909 old silver
Indigo Blu - Twit Twoo
