So my sister has been handing me these black gift boxes [sadly, no gifts in them...:(]. Now, you know I LOVE a good sturdy box because it can take my "abuse" better right? *winks*
I gave the lid of the box a clear coat of gesso because I wanted to see how the Silks acrylic glazes look wqrk on a darker background. Then I added a remnant piece of vintage lace and a white floral trim to the base of the box lid. For the top portion, I used the The Crafter's Workshop stencil with Liquitex sand resin and coloured with Silks acrylic glazes.
The beauty of using a glaze is that you can see the layer underneath it...I actually only used two metallic glaze colours - teal and blue. To add sparkle, I added Jo Sonja's clear glitter paint.
Then embellish! :)
