There is an awesome prize up for grabs for the project chosen by the Curiosity Crew (who supply oodles of inspiration each challenge) sponsored by Tim and Mario and every alternate challenge is sponsored by Inspiration Emporium (as in this weeks challenge cos it is an odd number) or The Funky Junky (on the even challenges) for the lucky draw prize!
I have been quietly busy on this configurations box on and off for a week now, knowing that I wanted to use this Effect powders technique on it in two places at least and then inspiration hit today with a bang...
I wanted this to be about our overseas trip to Europe in 1998. I was inspired by the Eiffel Tower on the round chipboard sticker which I covered in Rock candy Crackle paint.
I cannot remember who this stamp set is made by any more, I really think that manufactures should put their name on the plastic somewhere like Stampers Anonymous and Tim does...
I stamped the Eiffel Tower onto mount board, cut it out and did the effect as per Page 52 using Black soot and Brushed corduroy distress powders to get the look of rust.
Then to add extra dimension, I stamped over it in Jet black Archival ink.
This is the mini album as it hangs on the side of the box
Here you can see that the box can still come apart and (below) how I put the two hearts backing paper onto 4 layers of foam tape to bring it forward a bit because these boxes are so deep.
