Shiny!

That’s what Wednesday Stamper ask for this week – ‘shiny’! I was altering a domino box and finished it off today when I got home from work. It has more layers than usual and I covered the whole thing with torn text, acrylic paint, gesso, scrubbed with a baby wipe and then added bottlecap embellies and some inchies.

These wooden boxes hold children’s dominos usually – the little black wooden ones – and have a slide off top to them. I used images from the Ten Two Studios Edwardian Rounds for the bottlecaps and The Little Children  Collage Sheets for the inchies. I also added Anita’s 3D Gloss to the bottlecaps to seal the images and give a lovely, tactile shine to them. The flash has bounced off the clear microbeads I sprinkled into the wet gloss, but they are far more subtle in RL!

I used my fave “Cherish” stamp on the lid and both ends of the box…

I think it had better go into the Artygirlz ongoing Recycling Challenge too!
