Vintage Travel From Eileen Hull - New Release Part 2

Welcome back, I am showcasing more of Eileen Hull's fabulous CHA release for 2015. If you would like to see part one of the release you can view those HERE.
The first of today's dies is the fabulous BOX, TRAIN CASE. Again another versatile die and perfect for housing a special gift. I was aiming for a vintage, aged appearance with this piece. Once assembled I added greenery to the box die cut from white card using the Garden Greens die. I then painted all the areas with black paint and then set aside to dry. I then dry brushed with a burnt orange paint to give a rusty appearance.
I continued with the theme around the side of the box and added more greenery to the sides.
I love the hinges around the back of the case, it gives it a real authentic feel. I also added touches of wax here and there.
To complete I added a brass key and natural twine to the top along with hessian to the inside.
The next die is so cute, the 3D CHAIR, this is so realistic, I love it. Again I was going for an aged rusty appearance.
Greenery has been added to the back of the chair and once again I painted with black paint and then dry brushed with burnt orange paint.
This is another die that has so many possibilities.
I also added an Art with Heart cushion (Eileen's monthly challenge, and if you would like to join in for January you can find all the information HERE).
The final die I am showcasing is the TOOLBOX die, which I decorated as a chocolate box this time around, well I could not resist, especially as I like chocolate so much!
I was aiming for a very coordinated look for my first set of samples so once again just like yesterday's samples I decorated with the Wallpaper Paper Stash. I added a button to the centre and included natural twine around the edge of the box.
I coloured the edges with Gathered Twigs Distress Ink and added a key to the top of the box for added interest. I also added chocolates to the inside, well Eileen will need energy whilst demonstrating at CHA!
I hope you have enjoyed today's showcased pieces as much as I enjoyed making them.
