Ammonit Box using the new Andy Skinner Fossil stamp set and Stampendous Enamels

Hi all

Another teaser for you; a project made using Andy's fantastic new stamp range. The good news is it is being released THIS WEEKEND and when they are finally available you can get them here!

 Here is the finished project and below is a brief outline of how I created it.
I painted the box lid and base. Triple embossed the lid using Stampendous Enamels, and stamped into the lid while the enamels were still molten.
Once cooled, I used DecoArt white antiquing cream, paints and metallic lustres to give depth to the ammonite. I love it - very touchable! Hope you like it too. For a detailed step by step, have a look at my blog.
