Trinket Box

Simon Says Stamp and Show this week is to show a Tim Holtz technique.  I am sharing a trinket box I created from a box purchased from the clearance bin. 

 My trinket box using a few different Tim Holtz techniques:
This project uses all new stamps from Stampendous being released this month!  The box is covered in tissue tape which has alcohol ink applied over it to tint it to a nice rust color.  The edges of the box were inked up with versamark and heat embossed using black chunky embossing enamel and Aged Bronze embossing enamel. The gears are all stamped on acetate using versamark and heat embossed using black embossing powder.  The image is stamped onto a fragment and heat embossed using black embossing powder. 

Happy Tuesday!
