Anything 3D at Fashionable Stamping Challenges

Hello folks, we've got a fab new challenge over at Fashionable Stamping Challenges and this time around our theme is 'Anything 3d'. There's a fab prize of a $20 voucher from Flonzcraft for our lucky winner and of course there's the honour of a place in the Top 3 too. Don't forget though we are a stamping challenge so make sure that the focus of your project is stamping.

I've altered a little wooden box for my DT project. I've primed it with Maimeri gesso and then added very pale pink and green acrylic paint and sanded back for a distressed look. I've stamped around the edges of the box and the lid with stamps from Flonzcraft and Crafty Individauls using Gold Stazon Ink, I used the stamp without a block to create a kind of vintagey look.

The focal image is also from Flonzcraft, you can find her here. I coloured some paper with Spun Sugar and Bundled Sage distress ink, stamped the image with Potting Soil archival and then die cut with a circle die. I then applied Pebeo resin stuff and left it to dry, its ages since i've used a two part resin and I got in the most awful mess lol.

To finish off I applied Treasure Gold around all the edges and added little brass feet and a handle from Crafty Individuals.

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Craftitude: anything goes/use a die
Crafts 4 Eternity: to die for
Divas by Design: anything but a card
Everybody Art : Shabby chic
Rhedd's Creative Spirit: altered art anything goes

Thanks so much for visiting today, if you've got time do pop over and check out the beautiful projects from my talented teamies
