So, here I go.
I started by die cutting some small hearts from corrugated card to give them some depth. I wanted to place objects inside them. I played around with embossed Waxed paper and some stamped backgrounds but it wasn't right!
I decided to leave my experiments overnight and had a think.
Today, I decided to make my project less complicated and simply paint a box.
I selected a heart shaped box, it is 2 inches high and painted it with 2 coats of PA fresco Little Black Dress. Next I rubbed Treasure Brass onto the edges and onto the already embossed sides and sealed it all with 2 coats of Gloss Glaze.
I Treasure Pewtered my hearts and found some shiny objects to sit inside. I sealed them with Glossy Accents but could probably have used Gloss Glaze??
I stamped in gold the Sara Naumann hearts sentiment onto black tissue paper and glued it around the lid.
I haven't decorated the inside yet but will make that another project.
I love my little shiny box! Thanks Paperartsy for the stimulation!
