The third ATC Club meet had us make a box to hold ATCs. I absolutely love how this box turned out ... it was made using a faux rust technique ... and is all Linda's creation. Start with a box template and put it through the cuttlebug ... it'll have to be folded to fit in the embossing template but it doesn't matter that some of the pattern is embossed and other parts are debossed (not sure if that's a word). Paint the whole thing in black acrylic paint. Dab orange paint in spots and dry ... you won't be able to see the orange very well on the black, but it adds depth to the technique. Rub over the whole thing with Gold Gedeo Gilders Paste, making sure to have light and dark areas that show through some of the underneath colour. Dab orange paint in parts again and buff when you have thicker gold area. Rubb black paint over the edges, especially if you can see cracks in the paint. Decorate the inside of the box if you want to before sticking it together. Add fancy clasp to the front and decorate with black german scrap rubbed with the gilders paste ... pretty neat huh!
