"Spring Break" Art with Heart Challenge - Vintage Travel Release

Today I am sharing with you my Springy Tool Box  I made for the  "Art With Heart Challenge". The Art with the Heart April challenge is all about "Spring Break" so make sure to stop by the Eileen Hull's Blog to check out all the details along with other fabulous inspiration. We are also celebrating the Eileen's New Vintage Travel Dies and you can see the collection HERE!!!!
 I began by first distressing all my Vintage Travel Tool Box die cuts out using Spun Sugar Distress Ink.
Repeating again with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink...

Following lastly with the Tea Dye Stain...this will create the Salmon color for your Vintage Travel Toolbox and give it that Springy look.

Stamp each of the Vintage Toolbox using Colorbox Chestnut Roan along with Stampendous Stamps Wired N Studio Stamp Set.
Apply DecoArt White Crackle Paint using the Tim Holtz Burlap Stencil and palette knife. 
 Once the DecoArt Crackle Paste is dry on all the  Vintage Toolbox  you can decorate. I placed a  fun door knob on the top of my Vintage Toolbox. Wrapped and tied a pink sheer bow around the door knob along with a metal key and charm. Added flowers.
 I love metal and flowers...so had to add a few pieces to the front and top of the Vintage Toolbox.
I add a metal bead to each side of the Vintage Toolbox. 
I just love how my Springy Vintage Toolbox turned out and I hope you play along with us on the Art With Heart Challenge, I can't wait to see what you create. Hugs Pammejo
