This is my shipping box for the Treasures of the Sea Mini Matchbox swap that I'm taking part in. Alas, it did not photograph well.
I used 4 different shades of acrylic paint on the box, some blues and some greens. When the paint was dry I decoupaged some decorative paper (that I also used on the matchbox that's inside, I know I'm a stinker hinting and not showing.)
Then I stamped the sea grass, Oxford Impressions, in a really shimmery paint, it can look green or blue depending on how the light hit it. As a finishing touch I adhered a few sea life stickers.
The box looks very plain compared to my normal shipping boxes but I promise it's not, it just wouldn't photograph. Sigh...
Stay tuned to find out what's inside! I went over the top with this one.
