All about him - Neil

Hello :)
A lovely masculine box with Neil today, to keep decks of cards, which is a wonderful idea. 
Neil used a wooden box which he altered with Distressed/stamped card and metal
Love the texture and colours on this box, and we hope you will like it too. 
Please let us know in a comment below.

I made a box for my project, perfect for keeping a couple of decks of cards inside.
I can never find cards when I need them so now I know exactly where they are!

 I took a wooden box and cut card to fit the sides, I used Distress inks to colour them and added the stamping with Archival ink.

 I added a decorative clasp closure to the front along with the Play ticket.

 For the top I used metal sheets and alcohol ink and paint to create a riveted metal patchwork and added a few small cards that I inked and covered with UTEE.
To finish, everything was covered in Rock Candy Distress Crackle.

Material Neil used:
Alcohol Inks - Raisin, Stonewash, Ginger, Butterscotch

See you tomorrow


  1. Love the colours, the work on the metal tape, Neil, it's a great project for men - I guess you would know !

  2. Really great project, love the colours and useful.
