Damask Divas Hungtington Blog Hop

Welcome to Damask Divas Huntington Blog Hop.  My name is Traci Williams and I am an Independent Consultant with Close to my Heart.

If you came from Brenda Zimmerman's Keepable Paper Creations, you are in the right place. If you have jumped here and just discovered our blog hop, feel free to check the list at Damask Divas blog to find the complete list of blog hop participants.

My Huntington themed project features a Paper Mache box that I purchased at Hobby Lobby.  I then used a matte acrylic paint to match the color "Slate" that is a suggested color compliment to the Huntington Paper Pack.

From the Hutington WOTG kit, I used 2 different sheets of B&T papers to cover the painted box.  The box measures 4" wide and is 4 1/4" tall.  I cut the paper for the box at 3 3/4" x 4" (4 pieces). The lid measures 5" square so I used one piece of the B&T paper and cut to 4 7/8" x 4 7/8".  The lip of the box measures 1" x 5" and there I cut (4) 7/8" x 4 7/8" strips and use the other side of the B&T Paper.  I used Tombow Adhesive to adhere cuts to box.

I then colored 2 wooden pumpkin shapes with Autumn Terracotta Exclusive Inks® Stamp Pad, I used 2 different inking techniques.  The smaller pumpkin I colored directly on the ink pad, the larger pumpkin, I sponge dobbed the color on and then distressed with Whisper Exclusive Inks® Marker around the edges and used a little touch of Olive Exclusive Inks® Stamp Pad to color top of pumpkin. The canvas pumpkin comes from the Huntington WOTG kit's Huntington Assortment set.

I used the flourish wood pieces from the Mini-Medley Accents Wooden Collection.  Then I added some sparkles - Brown & Tan Assortment that also comes in the Huntington WOTG kit.

The stamped image is from the Huntington WOTG kit, inked with Slate Exclusive Inks® Stamp Pad.
