Well.....i have a big box with a lot scraps of embossed cardstock from other projects and i had the idea to use them for this weeks challenge at Simon Says Stamp and Show: Something Messy
Actually i'm taking another Dry - Time - Out from my PEZ Dispenser Transforming. I have to use a lot Apoxie Clay and that stuff has a drytime of 24 hours. It's a slow work progress even more i'm not the best artist in sculpting. This is absolutly out of my comfort zone. A sample...?
A face on old keys.....
They look a little bit better with paint (:o)
And now up to the pictures, how i made this shadow box
Cut a frame from cardboard
Used strong glue and glued pieces of embossed cardstock on frame, overlapping a bit
Gears, pearls, magic mash and diecuts from LaBlanche speciality stampingpaper are glued on with Glossy Accents
It's hard to see, but i used dark brown paint first
A light brush with silver paint and drybrushing with white paint
Some accents with turqoise and a lot washes with Quinacridone Gold
Cutting a big box in half and....
...pushed together for a smaller size
Painted the inside with turqoise and a wash of Q - Gold
Applyed broken china distress ink to LaBlanche speciality stamping paper
LaBlanche Stamp and black archival ink
Gloss Gel Medium and a stencil
Finished with a wash of Q - Gold and glued the paper into the box
The heart with wings is made of plaster
