Altered Lipstick Holder turned 2-in-1 ATC published!

At last, pubbed... at scrapbook news and review... you can click here for the article

how i did it:

first of all, i would like to thank CHING PHILIPS for giving me the lipstick holder ( with a lipstick inside!) as a gift during one of our mini eb...

1. the green faux snake skin lipstick holder

2. paint the inside with glaze paints

3. paint the outside cover with acrylic paints.

4. I also applied Judikins Microglaze to make it shimmer. I have to leave it overnight and buff it to create a magnificent effect.

5. Painting with Radiant Rain instead of spraying with it adds a bit of "uniqueness". Look at the mottled effect! That's because of the Microglaze which is oily.. you just have to experiment.

6. Next part is playing with beads... I used the sepia accent as a medium for adhering the beads. I also painted the chipboard with acrylic paint.

7. How i love grungeboards!!!!

8. The sideview of the holder.

another view of the ATC

i bought some unknown chinese stamps at a japanese surplus store for only 100bucks!!! this contained 6 individual wood mounted rubber stamps! a scrapper would know the real value of such!!! and so my hands grabbed it immediately.

thanks for looking!
