Sizzix Art With Heart "Projects to Love"

Valentines Day may be over, but there's still many "Projects to Love."
I used the Sizzix Scoreboards Canister die and the Sunburst embossing folder to create this fun gift box suitable for the guy in my life. This die is part of the Vintage Kitchen Sizzix line by Eileen Hull. As you can see, these dies can be used for more than "Kitchen" projects.
Won't this make a cute gift box? Perfect for movie tickets or little trinkets.

I used the new DecoArt line of Fluid Acrylic Paints and Mediums. The colors are amazing! There's also antiquing creams. I used the Medium Gray Antiquing Cream to really bring out the details. The Gloss Varnish is my new favorite. It created the most gorgeous shine!

The Art with Heart Challenge is a monthly celebration of creativity!  Each month the Inspiration Team will be showcasing our Art with Heart created with Eileen Hull’s innovative Sizzix dies. This month, the theme is Projects to Love! We invite you to play along with us and share YOUR art with heart!
We want this to be a place for everyone to create, inspire and share.  We would love to see what you can do with Eileen Hull’s fabulous products but this is not a requirement.  Use what ever products your artful “heart” desires.  Art is for everyone so come along and share your Art with Heart!
