ClubScrap May Artist Team Challenge Blog Hop

MAY ARTIST CHALLENGE

The May challenge is to incorporate metal or faux metal elements to embellish your pages, cards or other projects. We could use punches, die cuts, or other techniques to create them. 
Today I created this great box with a drawer for holding my finger sponges...I have a lot of them!!

Start by adhering mat board strips to a mat board base.  I made the walls 2 inches tall.

Create a drawer that fits perfectly inside the box.  I made the walls 1.75in tall.

Create a front for the drawer, cover matboard with pattern paper and metal embellishment and knob to allow for easy open and closing of drawer.
 I painted the edges of the mat board with black paint.  Then I adhered pattern paper to the outside of the box.

Here is all my finger sponges in the box.

Now I created the box top.  I put cut out images and letters onto the top of the matboard:

 Cover with metal foil tape and use bone folder to emboss foil around images/letters:

Use alcohol inks to ink the foil tape.  Then I used a little bit of black acrylic paint and rubbed around the images with my finger, this makes them pop a little more:






So now go check out LILIAN's project next!!!

The majority of the materials used in this project are from ClubScrap. TFL DebDuzScrappin
