Tim Holtz challenge - 12 tags of 2013 - June

I thought I'd have a go at Tim Holtz's challenge this week.
12 Tags of 2013 : June

It's been a while since I did distress, and I needed to use my new distress pens for watercolour painting. It was great fun!

PaperArsty Challenge - Sue Carrington

Sue is back for her next week at PaperArtsy.
I loved her altered pencil/sewing case, and decided to finish a project that has been hanging around my craft desk for ages : a wooden tissue Box.

I did have a go before, and hated the result so I stripped it down, and have been waiting for inspiration...

The top of the box is from the original attempt - it was texture paste that I stamped into. I just repainted it with Fresco Paints (Nougat, Irish Cream, Claret and Chocolate pudding)

For the sides I used metal. I embossed them, mounted them on black card then painted them with the same colours as the box.

Okay, it very subtle colour wise, but I like it :)
