Goodly day everyone.
When I posted about the retreat weekend I did not show my box to you so I thought I would rectify that today. (Since, truth be told I have only just got round to putting the hinges on!)
So here we go
So, this is the top view. The box was gessoed and painted. Then a script stamp was stamped onto tissue and adhered randomly before everything was inked. I then departed from everyone elses sewing theme (No real suprise there, is there) I used a Katzelkraft horse stamp plate to add images then instead of the tailor dummy I cut cogs out of mountboard, triple embossed with autumn gold embossing powder and stamped into the last later with a crackle stamp. AMAZING TEXTURE!!!!!
I cut some cogs in shrink plastic too. Some gold rub n buff was added to highlight. The hinges are rusted grunge with distress embossing powder.
Inside the box I roughly coloured and adhered tissue before stamping another horse. I covered this in glossy accents in sepia and added a triple embossed flourish and a spare cog.
So there you have it folks; a "manly" take on a sewing embellishment box! Hope you enjoy and have a blessed day.
