Do you want to play a game? Playing cards box by Monika Maksym

I hope you are well :)
Today I wanted to share with you this project. Something I had in mind for a while and finally had time to make :) I hope you like it!

 I have started my project with painting a wooden box with dark grey chalky finish paint mixed with water (2:1) inside and out.

Next, I have applied light grey chalky paint and metallic fluid acrylic paint randomly using brayer.

I have scraped texture sand paste through stencils on top and sides of the box. Once dry I have added  few washes of Paynes Grey and Quinacridone Gold fluid acrylics to add a bit of colour and shading all over the box.
To accent the texture I have drybrushed the sides with white chalky paint.

Little greyboard book plate was painted with Raw Umber and Titan Buff then word 'SCARED?' was stamped on it and fixed on the front of the box

 I have included few playing cards as well...  :)
I hope you have enjoyed my inspiration
