What a surprise when I saw this beautiful sample Gay made. Not at all her usual style, but I'm sure you will agree that she is very good at grungy stuff too.
A lovely box to offer to a man in your life.
Here's how Gay used the paint on this sample.
I painted with Cinnamon and then the crackle glaze, allowed to dry and then a coat of Black. I used the harlequin template and painted through it to get the lighter paint effect with the two greens. I added a very light spray of cosmic shimmer in Golden mint just to give the lighter areas a bit of zing. Finally stamped and embossed the Telegraph text and knocked that back by sanding. Making anything for men, for me, is a big challenge but I actually enjoyed getting all painty with this one!
