Stamp Man - Alter It

The day I painted this the sun had come out after all those weeks of rain in June and July so I chose a happy, summery colour theme to work with.

Recipe -
1. Paint box all over and let dry.
2. Stamp images onto tissue paper and tear them out..
3. Tear dictionary pages
4. Modge Podge the images, dictionary text and plain tissue paper over the lid.
5. When dry add more paints around all of these.
6. Stamp flourish around the edges.
7. Glue die cut around the base of the box.
8. Sand corners and edges and add Vintage Photo DI.
Finish by adding embellishments.

Supplies -
Dictionary text
Gold mirri board
Sizzix swirly strip die

If you are altering anything over the next fortnight then do link it to The Stamp Man, you never know you might be the winner of a £10 voucher to the Stamp Man on-line store.

Happy crafting.

Friday evening update -
I altered this box and scheduled the post because I have been away on holiday - photos will be coming -
and I have just got back this afternoon. Suffice to say, I took this with me and it now has a new home at Terry's place in California, where she blogged about it a couple of weeks ago when I met up with her - more on that too to come over the weekend.
