IndigoBlu week - Michelle

Our guest designer Michelle is with us today with a beautiful altered box and ATCs. Michelle used the Yorkshire Evening Post stamp plate for her project. 

 I first stamped the ATC with StazOn and coloured them with Antique Linen thin with water. When dry, I inked here and there with Faded Jeans and Pumice Stone Distress inks. Added some ink spots with Walnut Stain and inked the edge as well. I decorated them with matching Bazzil cardstock and banner stamp. The box is decorated as well with a stamped image and coloured with Antique Linen Distress inks. I made a mini frame with the bottle cap and wrote ATC before to cover with Glossy Accent. I die cut some leaf and made 2 paper rosettes with an old book page. I used tacky glue to adhere the paper to the tin and I used the hot glue gun for the decorations on the lid

Distress inks: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen, Pumice Stone, Faded Jeans.

See you tomorrow
