DT Project #1 by Minxy, Featuring:

Kaisercraft Base Coat Collection

Hay Snazzy fans. 
Hope everyone is enjoying the nice summery spell we have been having here in the UK.
So as you know we are working with the very cool kaisercraft base coat papers and some of their clear stamps too.
My first project is using the 'Bark' sheet.


I started by giving a blank wooden box {from Snazzy's} a coat of cream eco green acrylic paint but only on the edges as I knew most of it would be covered with papers.


I then measured and cut out the paper to fit each side and the top and stuck it all down with cosmic shimmer glue.


I diecut a butterfly and some swirls from the same paper and from some manilla card.

I then stamped the box using the 'perfume' clear stamp for the top, the 'journal' clear stamp for the sides, along with one of the words from the 'secret admire-definitions' clear stamp set for the front.


I used a prima 'engraver collection' flower coloured with a bit of distress ink to match the paper and the die-cut pieces to embellish the top. A brad for the faux knob and some old bingo chips painted black for the feet.

I hope today's project has been to your liking, I'll be back again with a nice shabby scrapbook layout on wednesday, 
so till then Stay Inky

Well, it's definitely to my liking Minxy! It's lovely and how nice those colours look. I would never have thought to use those colours on a box but it looks beautiful. Love how you used the stamps too and your embellishments on the top are gorgeous. I adore butterflies, lol! This is a wonderful start to your week
