Mixed Media Keepsake Box

Monday, July 3, 2017
I was at my local A.C Moore couple days ago and saw this cute wooden keepsake box and had to bring it home with me. I didn't have any idea about what I wanted to do with it until I saw this new text stamp set from Crafter's Companion and immediately this popped into my mind! 

I first stamped it with embossing ink and heat set it with white embossing powder, I was worried how it would end up but luckily they turned out the way I hoped. I then colored the surface with Sparkle Markers (make sure not to use acrylic paint over the embossed letters or you won't get this result!) and when it dried completely I applied a layer of mod podge just to seal the surface.

For the center piece, I created the watercolor background with Sparkle Markers as well and they look pretty good. Using the same technique, I stamped and heat embossed the word "FAMILY LOVE" with white embossing powder then only I create the watercolor background on a watercolor cardstock. 


I actually made two of similar design, one for the front and the other on the back.
