Pretty Box Created for Chocolate Baroque TV Show

I created this sample for the recent TV shows from Chocolate Baroque on The Craft Channel. Lesley Wharton was fantastic and gave some wonderful demos using the new background stamps. They are so versatile for so many projects and styles.

I used the lovely Baroque Orchids stamp to give a plain balsawood box a complete make over. The box was actually an empty Turkish Delight sweet box left over from last Christmas.

Materials:

  • Baroque Orchids stamp
  • White gesso
  • Acrylic flow formula paints – yellow, orange, bright pink and light turquoise
  • Turquoise alcohol pen
  • Die cut flower coloured with alcohol markers
  • Fern leaves created with paper clay and a mould
  • Pale blue glitter glue
  • Cut-N-Dry foam and paint brushes
  • 3D glue gel

How it was made:

  1. Painted the box with white gesso.
  2. Painted with yellow, orange and pink paints – blending the colours together.
  3. Stamped the box with the Baroque Orchids stamp in turquoise acrylic paint. Applied to the stamp with cut-N-Dry foam. Tip: to stamp the sides it is easier to place the stamp onto your craft mat and roll the box sides onto the stamp. Remember to clean your stamp quickly before the paint dries.
  4. Added dots of colour with alcohol marker and glitter glue. Sponged some turquoise acrylic along the box edges.
  5. Glued on the embellishments.
