Stampbord Trinket Box

I'm back from my weekend and thought I'd show you the trinket box made while I was away and taught by Paddy a lady from Manchester.
This is the top of the trinket box with a Stampbord top.
The box was inked with various shades of browns, oranges and yellows and the same shades were blended onto the stampbord it was then stamped with the lion in a black ink then scratchedaway the clay top on the Stampbord in various places to allow the white to show through, although I have done this technique many times I had always glazed the stampbord with UTEE or left it plain, this one has a beeswax coating added which leaved a lovely sheen without it being shiney.

This is the side view of the trinket box as you can see it is finished in a gold trim arounf the stampbord and the edge of the box has also been stamped.

Beautiful Jak,you never fail to amaze me with your creations. I love tigers, they are just so beautiful to look at.
Whatever the problem was that was preventing me accessing your blog seems to have sorted itself out, for now anyway.

Fabulous creation Jak, it does look amazing with the beeswax finish!!! Was it a workshop at Paddys Stamping Place? I keep getting emails from Paddy about workshops but have never got around to actually booking one..maybe I should :)

They are just gorgeous aren't they Jak - I know I'm thrilled with mine! I have picked up some Egyptian stamps from QVC with dawn this afternoon and I thought they would be ideal on these so I'm going to have a play - not tonight though as I'm shattered after all the weekends excitement! Viv xx

Brilliant Jak and I know that it's even better in real life, having seen it and all the others that were made. I'm even pleased with mine although it doesn't hold a candle to yours. I'll be putting mine on my blog sometime soon ...
