I have to admit that this was an afterthought. I was dabbing on alcohol inks with the blending foam when I had extra alcohol inks on the foam. I was looking for things to dab so I wouldn't waste it. I have some claybord boxes that were just sitting there doing nothing. I did this right after I did the bangles (more to come about that later). I found out that the alcohol inks work well on wood as well. Not necessarily the unfinished wood with splinters in it but the DIY wood or wood-like finishes. Anyway, it worked great on the sides of the claybord.
After I dabbed the whole thing with alcohol inks, I put on some crackle paint in random areas. I let that dry and then used different distress ink colors on top of the crackle paint and on the alcohol inks to age it up a bit. The back of the claybord had writing on it, so I glued on some scrim that I got from the Quilting Arts website to the back of the box. I used my finger and dabbed on some gold paint in random areas to contrast against the dark sides.
I added the sewing elements to the box. I used the distress inks to make them look old and used. I used my Dremel and drilled holes in the top so I could attach the bobbins. The bobbins were also alcohol ink'd.
Yeah, I know that the scan is not so good. I could take a pict of it, but I am not feeling it right now. Maybe, I will do that later. I am groovin' on the final product though.
