Small box , covered in crumpled up tin foil painted to look (almost) metallic ...

Materials used :-
Small cardboard box with lid
Tin foil crumpled up - enough to cover the box & lid
Starbucks Coffee holder - a ripped off  bit enough to go accross the lid of the box.
Black Acrylic paint
Inka Gold Paint
Metal flower - used tattered floral Tim Holtz die
Gem stones

To make :-
Paint crumpled tin foil with black acrylic paint.
Sponge some off before it dries so some tin foil shows through.
Allow to dry.
Adhere peice of coffee holder paper on lid, and then cover the lid with more crumpled tin foil.
Press foil down over lid and press down carefully so that the ridges are more emphasised from the  paper underneath.
Add inka gold paint haphazardly over the box,
Embellish as required.

Today was a stamping day, stamped & coloured in lots of stampboard tiles. These are FANTASTIC to stamp on I love them & use them a lot. Adding a glazed varnish makes them look like ceramic tiles. 

I usally add them on to Cards, ATC's or make little stampboard booklets from them.
