I passed over this little recipe box twice before going back and snagging it for 50 cents at the local thrift shop on Tuesday. Isn't she a beauty? Blue green on the outside and even though the picture looks red, that's orange on the inside.
I had a few images I'd colored up in copics for Nicecrane Designs sitting on my desk and last night, I got a spur of motivation to alter one of my 'cheap finds' sitting out in the garage.
Here is the sheet of digital stamps that I used called Colors of Spring.
Here is the new, and I hope, improved recipe box with a card.
The foundation of paint is White and Vintage Lace acrylic paint. Smudges of Black Licorice acrylic added later for aging and distressing.
A combination of frilly-ish die cuts that I had laying around combined with the circle die cut of the copic colored image in the center, all triple layered with UTEE, purchased at Linda's Zibbet store, The Funkie Junkie Boutique.
Typed up 'Recipe' on Microsoft Word and then mirror printed onto regular printer paper. After trimming out the word, I applied it to the top of the recipe box using the Mod Podge Transfer Method. Got a little too wet in places and bits of the word are missing, but it added character so I left it.
Lined the inside with vintage papers from Brenda Walton's Scrap Pad to Go by K&Company, also attached with Mod Podge.
Another image from Nicecrane's Colors of Spring, also colored in Copics, is matched with scraps from the recipe box to complete the gift set.
So? Whatcha' think? Is it worthy to place in a craft sale or should I scrap it and retry? I'm happy to hear any and all suggestions.
Thank you so much for popping in to see this project and I hope you're doing wonderful.
Hugs n' Happy Stamping....
