Welcome back to the finale blog hop with Deflecto Craft and their design team. We have been hopping all week long and if you are just now popping in then you may want to go over to the Stampendous blog to see all the links from this week, because there are prizes!!! Yep, comment to win one of three Stampendous prize package or one of the three Deflecto cupcake display.
Today's project is a simple looking one and it's really easy to do, but it makes anything look a million dollars. Here's how I did it.
I started out embossing the fronts of each container with a stamp that was the perfect width! I stamped Cling Decorative Border Stamp Versamark Watermark ink with Detail Clear Embossing Powder.
Once that was done, I taped down the sides of each container. There was a natural curve that the shadow gave me a line for a guide.
I painted the container fronts with DecoArt Americana Chalky Finish paint in Treasure and set it in front of a fan to dry completely.
The next step was to brush on DecoArt Americana Walnut Finish Gel Stain. Once it's brush on, it's time to rub off. I used a paper towel.
Here is the completed piece.
And a detail of the embossed border. What would you do with the lids? I'm still wondering what to do. I was thinking about silver?
That's it for me. Now it's time to go to Pam Bray's blog. Here is a list of the complete hop today in case you get lost. :)
