This beautiful box was made with a 5x7 Stampbord Box Kit. The top was painted with Golden Fluid Acrylics. Sand paper was used to lighten some areas of the blue paint. Sandra went over these with some chalk inks to add little bits of greenish highlights. She then stamped the sea fan in black StazOn and the fish with black embossing ink. Sandra sprinkled a few different embossing powders onto various parts of each fish. After scratching out highlights on the fish, and creating bubbles, she used chalk inks to paint in more color onto each fish. Next, she scratched out more highlights and over stamped the fishes with a little more embossing ink and powders. The inside of the box was lined with green felt. The sides were stained with cherry stain and sealed with polyurethane to give it a glossy look.
