Eileen Hull Sizzix Book Club Release

Welcome to my monthly post for Eileen Hull. This month we are showcasing Eileen's new Sizzix Book Club Release.
The first piece I am showcasing uses Eileen Hull's Sizzix ScoreBoards L Die - Stamp & Photo Storage. The front panel is from Eileen's Sizzix Scoreboards XL Die - Book and Pages Trinket Box and Frame Die.
The pieces have been die cut from mountboard and I began with a first layer of colour, brayering the colour, in this case Turquoise Heavy Body Acrylic over the mountboard. Use only a light touch so that some of the white areas are still visible.
I then added a second layer of colour, Lime again only using a light touch.
To add some depth to the design I added light touches of Ruby to each die cut piece.
To give a touch of definition to the top piece, I blended Black Soot Distress Ink around the edges.
I only added touches of Ruby Acrylic Paint to my top piece so that stood prominantly from the background piece. I glued and then machine stitched the Storage Box and added some cheesecloth and cotton fibres behind for added texture.
I added some scribbly lines around the front panel and also added a clay face for added interest and dimension.
Friend is from Eileen Hull's Sizzix Thinlits Die Set Floral Arch and Words set. I also created some coordinated cards to add to the box.
I added Remnant Rubs to the face and also included some rusty coiled wire.
This box would be perfect for giving vouchers for a special occassion.
I coloured the clay face with touches of paint, applying the paint with my finger.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I will be back next week to showcase another piece from Eileen's collection.
