A Real Treasure...

Hello Quick Quotes fans!   Jan here today to host the blog for you.

I bought this treasure chest type box at a thrift store and decided the new Cracklin' Rose Line would give the box a beautiful vintage look.

I started the background using a stencil and some molding paste.  I then used Powder Puff Chalking Ink to add some color to the molding paste.  Colors used are Bloody Mary and Limeade.

I've enhanced the top of the box with flowers, burlap, mini candle sticks, border punch and pearls.  The top of the chest was misted with misting spray to give it an aged look.

The inside is lined with Cracklin' Rose.  It's all held together with Helmar 450 Quick Dry.  Love that stuff :)

Thanks so much for stopping on over today!  I hope you find a treasure to inspire you to craft too!!!
