Hello everyone, I'm here with my latest make a stamped wooden box with autumn leaves.
First, I painted them white with several coats using acrylic paints.
Then I started to stamp the leaves from Nature's Wonder stamp set by Tim Holtz (Stampers Anonymous). For stamping, I used the Gathered Twigs Distress ink but any brown is okay. Then I heat embossed with Vintage Photo Distress embossing powder. It was really a big job! I stamped and heat embossed 34 leaves, plus the two sentiments!
Then I started to colour the leaves. I used diluted DecoArt Americana paints but the best solution was the DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic paints.
When I finished the colouring I spattered the box with diluted brown paint and inked the edges of the box with Ranger Archival ink (Potting Soil).
And in the end, I covered the whole box with a silky varnish. But this is a special vintage varnish that I made by myself, I put Distress ink into the bottle and mixed them. So when I use this varnish my project gets a vintage look.
This box is now in my kitchen and I keep fruits and vegetables in it.
I hope you like it! Thank you for stopping by!
With my project, I would like to join the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge: Fall/Autumn
