This Easter box is my second inspirational project for the April challenge of the Country View Challenges where I'm your hostess this month. I chose a quite obvious theme - I hope you like it - Easter and/or Spring.
To begin with, I took an oval-shaped poplar box and painted them with DecoArt Americana paints. For the top, I mixed Ligh Buttermilk with a tiny drop of Pineapple. I put two coat of paints, but of course, I let the paint dry between the coats.
I cut out the bunny with Sizzix Bigz die, Cottontail by Tim Holtz (664167) from grey chipboard. And for the dots, I used the Sizzix Bigz Die, Gadget Gears 1 and the middle of the smallest gear. I cut them out from chipboard as well.
I put an even coat of DecoArt gesso on the cutouts.
After drying I painted them white. I let them dry, then with sandpaper, I sanded the edges of the die-cuts.
The bottom was painted with DecoArt Americana, Dove Grey colour. Here I also applied two coats.
Now the next process was made with the top and the bottom as well: After drying I sanded the edges and inked with Ranger Archival Coffee ink. Then with a sponge, I tapped diluted white paint onto the surface to achieve a look like this.
I glued the cut outs to the lid and my box was ready.
I hope you like it!!! And if you have a project in the theme of Easter and/or Spring, please don't hesitate to join our April challenge where you can win a £20 voucher.
