My tool box...

Just a quick post as I have the worst week ever..
I bought this box at NEC to decorate and have done it over the last 2 days..
What better to decorate it with but my new spring Magnolia Kit...
Anyone reading the H&S posts on Paper Craft Planet will know my head is all over the place just now and did not think about what I was doing properly... I used Gesso on the plain bare wood as a base and then stamped my new images onto the box, then used my distress inks to colour them with. Not thinking about it being waterbased I then covered it in Distress Clear Crackle paint...Lol..
Any normal time I would have thought about it..the next ones I buy will be coloured with my copics...
I am still very happy with the effect I have just that the colours smudged a bit...!
The pictures are not as good as I would have liked either but I hope you get a little bit of inspiration from it..
