At least I could get started on the day to day jobs, then off to work, but need a quick visit to our local craft warehouse first.
This was a bit of an experiment, I had some tin boxes and wanted to decorate them.
First I painted it with white acrylic then sponged with the silks. The detail was added using the edge of the sponge.
I stamped and embossed the kingfisher onto white card then painted with a mixture of Distress inks and silks. The kingfisher was cut out the glued down onto the tin. To prevent the paint being scratched off I sprayed a couple of coats of spray and shine on top.
It was great fun experimenting , I really love the texture sponging over paint gave. You can actually see the shimmer from the silks in this picture .
