I found this little box with coasters at a flea market and thought it would be a good project for recycling! =)
I wasn't sure what to make of it, after I had given my mum all the coasters, so decided to check through my digis first. When I found CS Designs beautiful Anna May Wong digital stamp I just had to print her out and color her with my promarkers. Her hair got a brown color, the decorations in her hair are in green, yellow and red tones and a slight touch of pink on her lips.
Then back to the box, I have package of asian style napkins that are well used for crafting, so I cut out a piece and used my decoupage glue to add it to the lid of the box. Since the wood is so dark I had to add two layers of napkins and I really like how it turned out!
|I added Anna Wong with my trusty glue and then used a stamp pad to chalk the edges of the lid in champagne. To make sure it wouldn't come off I use a varnish spray and on the areas where it didn't work, I added some more decoupage glue. I really like how it turned out and maybe I'll keep it or give it to a friend, haven't decided yet! =)|
