Artist Box

Today is the final day of the Innovative Stamp Creations September Stamp Release - today's release is the Vintage Artist Box. Think of the Vintage Artist Box line as your Art-Mural! Once your piece is finished you can showcase it somewhere in your Studio or Art area! Consider the following themes when working on your Art Mural: butterflies, eclectic, faces of women, travel, flowers, vintage and many more.

So this is the focal image:

And here is what I created:

Wonder how I got to the results above from the focal image? I thought I would share some of the steps with you!

Applied Distress Ink direct to paper:

Blend on some Antique Linen DI to "dull" the color:

Randomly added script image:

Stamped the focal image with Versamark and clear embossed, then direct to paper with Walnut Stain DI:

Next I determined what I wanted to go into the boxes and cut out the boxes that I wanted to fill:

I needed the background piece - just blended some green and stamped a larger script stamp (from Dimensional Elements: Edges):

Add the metal and stamped pieces:

Side View:

I really liked how this turned out so I used the artist box to create a birthday wall piece for my SIL:

Pretty much the same process, different colors and images. Side view:
