I want to share my make with you today for the latest challenge over at A Vintage Journey - we've been asked to Stain it - use distress stains. I altered a little wooden box using three distress stains and some TH stamps. The colours I used are mowed Lawn, Peacock Feathers and Salty Ocean.
I used the mowed lawn stain to colour the box inside and out and then used combinations of the three stains to create 4 background papers, swooshing the paper (card actually) into them, spritizing with water, drying and more swooshing until I was happy. One of these papers was used to cover 4 sides of the box.
The other three papers were stamped on using the sealife blueprint stamps. I then fussy cut the images.
I also cut some of the garden greens using the papers I'd produced and stuck the fussy cut and die cut items onto the box.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Hope you've enjoyed your visit today! Have a great day - and thanks for dropping by!
