The company I work for is moving offices next week so this week has involved packing loads of crates and sorting out files - which has been a nightmare while trying to carry on with day to day work as well. Not had much time to do any crafting :( One of the presents for my older DD's birthday was in a plain black gift box, which I thought was rather boring, so I jazzed it up a bit:
here is a link to the product page for it at The Craft Barn, basically it's a crackle medium which you can get in colours or tranparent. I like it better than any of the other crackle paints and mediums I have tried because I get a great effect with it). Anyway, once that was dry I spritzed it with lots of different cosmic shimmer mists. Can't remember all of them but I know I used Mallow Blush, Golden Fish and Peacock. I took a chipboard shape and covered that with Blackberry Ferro which I then stamped with a text stamp. I gave that a couple of spritzes with different shimmer mists as well, then rubbed some treasure wax over the top too. It looks better than plain black, anyway!
