Paper Fun with Cynnie
Cynthia's Galerie 46 is featuring some hand-painted papers this week; I've printed one of her freebies to use on an Altoid tin. (Her post today features even more greens--beautiful green prints--and a link to a wonderful interview of Cynthia in another blog,) I told Cynnie that I would be using one of her first green papers, but I wasn't sure how. This is how: First I printed the pattern I wanted on a piece of cardstock. I then cut it to fit the bottom edge of the tin, as well as the lid and the inside. After spraying the tin lime green, I applied the printed cardstock with Glossy Accents and used the crackle GA as the top coat. (This took longer than expected because we've had temperatures in the 90's and humidity levels much higher than normal. The paint and the Glossy Accents required an overnight drying time.) This morning, I added some black trim and two diecuts (Memory Box die) to the lid, finishing with a black Prima flower.
