Going on a spring break? Don't forget your travel cases ^.^

Today I have for you a project made with Train Case die, one more gorgeous Eileen Hull's die from her new Sizzix collection Vintage Travel.


 very inspiring die and it was very fun to work with, interested in how to make this yourself? read below ^.^

first of all I took dimensions of the box and cut some Core'dinations cardstock, embossed it with Eileen's Sunburst embossing folder, distressed it and adhered to the box

after that I covered all the box with white paint (Deco Art Titanium white), but let some texture and black color below it to show. When the paint was dry I added some Broken China distress ink here and there

for more texture I applied distress crackle paint

and then sepia archival ink to highlight the raised areas

some of the case details I wanted to look like faux leather, so the easiest way for me was just to cut some Tim Holtz grunge paper and color it with Vintage photo distress ink

the hinges were inspiration from Shelly Hickox  (which creative spirit I secretly admire (Hello Shelly ;) )technique Faux Tarnished Silver , with the only difference that I added and melted the UTEE and the silver embossing powder simultaneously

The technique above was also the one I used to create Anna-Karin's baby shover gift - Tiny Adventurer's Log
