A Tim Holtz Curio Box

Using Tim's new Curio Box die I've created a mini scene with a retro/vintage transport theme. To get that lovely retro vibe I used Andy Skinner's transfers

The base of the box was cut from black card and lined with the die-cut shape from the lid which was cut from white card.
Sealed with gesso and then covered with the transfers the lid piece and insert was then dipped in some cobalt turquoise wash and dried before putting together.
As I like to do I distressed the edges with brown distress ink and spritzed it lightly with water before drying it to get that aged look and did the same over some of the backgrounds.

I kept one of the car transfers to rub onto white card and cut out for part of the focal point in the front with the lovely couple ....

.... painted a metal penny farthing bicycle and adhered to the top ....

... and added some 'extras' to set the scene.

Thanks for stopping by.
