Wooden box with tulips by Stampendous

For this wooden box, I chose the Dutch Tulips stamp set from the Stampendous.

I painted the top with DecoArt Americana White Wash. When it was dry I sanded, then I put another layer white paint. 

I stamped the tulips with Ranger Distress Antique Linen. I like to use Distress ink for my boxes because if the stamping is not successful, it's blurry for example, I can wipe it off easily. 

So after stamping I heat embossed with Ranger embossing powder (white).

For colouring the tulips, I also used acrylic paints. 

In the end, I put a layer of varnish (silky shine) too.



  1. Looks fantastic! So feminine and elegant:) Simply beautiful! Big hugs, Zsuzsi

  2. That's so pretty, Monika - lovely work with the stencil.
