Art card holder

Hi Hermine here, last post for 2013! How time flies. I made this art card holder, which was a present from a friend.

step 1: Glue the box together, give it a layer of gesso, inside as well as the outside, Then put on a layer of silver acryllic paint, dry with the heattool, causing the paint to bubble. Then take some black M'xed Media Ink and sponge the whole box. Whipe the excess of with a baby whipe so you get the aged silver look.
step 2: Stamp the text You are here 19178 on one of the sides and stamp the washi grid background 19074 on the front and to the sides using Stazon jet Black. Glue the metall corners on with miracle tape.
step 3: Make all the cards, I did each and everyone by hand. I decorated the first one using the tekst With Love 19302 and City on snail 18975, stamping with Stazon Jet Black and coloured in with Lyra crayons and a waterbrush.

And voila ready and set to use. Imagine how it will look like when all the cards where decorated and the whole box was filled with little art works from all over the world. That would be awesome, wouldn't it. Wishing you a great turn of the year and a very creative 2014.

You are here 19178

Dit ziet er geweldig goed uit, Hermine!! Ook weer erg fijn, dat je vertelt hoe je tot dit resultaat bent gekomen (heb met groeiende interesse het beschilderen v h kistje gelezen). Mooi resultaat.
Wens jou een leuke Oudejaarsavond en ook alvast een prachtig en creatief 2014. Doe vooral datgene waar je goed in bent, maar bovenal wat energie en voldoening geeft.
Groetjes Gery
