Today’s tutorial on SCS is written by Jane Matsumoto. It’s how to create a box with four scallop edge envelopes. It’s very cute, but after Ranger U, I am so not in the cute mood. So I decorated it a bit different. I embossed a grungeboard swirl with Vintage Photo Distress Embossing powder and added a flower from Foilage and a Philosopy Tag.
My box is made out of Neenah Solar White cardstock. I embossed all four sides with Cuttlebug’s Textile. Next I treated the cardstock with a technique Tim showed us on Grungeboard. He called it Grunge Distress. Since I was not using Grungeboard, I call it Acrylic Distress. I shot some step by step pictures to show you. Just click on more if you want to see it.
P.S.: I will have to take out the candy and tissue and add some brown speckles on it. It’s just too darn white.
Apply Acrylic Ink over the embossed cardstock. Let dry.
I used Adirondack Juniper Acrylic Paint Sponge Dabber.
Sand off some of the Acrylic Paint over the embossed image. Clean off the fine dust off your cardstock.
Mist a rag (Tim uses one all the time. So now I have several as well.) with water and rub off the ink over the acrylic paint. It will stay in the spots where the Acrylic Paint was sanded off.
Cool, right? Hugs and smiles
