We have an exciting new challenge for you at Stamps and Stencils today with our lovely host Cec. She's chosen the theme Tags, Bags & Boxes! Cec says, "With Christmas coming up and the gift buying underway, we are going to need something to wrap them in. Let's make some mixed media tags, bags & boxes that will be as treasured by the recipient as the gift itself. Don't forget to include some stamping or stenciling." Isn't that a wonderful concept?! Thank you Cec!
I've saved this Samsung Galaxy phone box for ages because of the beautiful woodgrain design. I used white gesso to cover the logo, then texture paste through a DIY stencil. To make my stencil I cut a Tim Holtz die from recycled plastic sheet. Talk about a cheapie project! Anyway, I used Lindy's sprays to color the texture paste, adding some drips for interest. I also dripped on Prima Color Bloom in gold.
The Lindy's spray was quite magenta! I thought it would be more red, so I had to make a flower to coordinate. I used two large and five medium tattered floral cutouts. I gave the flower another splash of gold.
I added several die cuts and some gold ribbon for a festive touch.
The metallic brown dies tie back into the box's seam. I hope you are inspired to celebrate with us!
