Vintage Travel at Art With Heart

This month at Art With Heart the Inspiration Team are celebrating the release of Eileen Hull's Vintage Travel Collection which will be available in the shops from May 2015.  All month long there will be lots of inspiration there and of course, the Art With Heart Challenge is also running, with the theme of 'Spring Break.  One lucky participant will win a die from the new Vintage Travel range, which you can see HERE.

Art with Heart Challenge April "Spring Break" Sizzix Prize Pack | Eileenhull.com

When I first saw this train case, below, for sale on a website in America, I wanted to re-create it using Eileen's fantastic new Train Case die from the Vintage Travel collection.

To create my version below, I used DecoArt's new Media Range of products and a Prima stencil.
The inside of the die cuts was painted with Cobalt Teal Hue, a real favourite of mine.  The matboard die cuts take the paints well.  Mountboard or Grey Board would work equally well.
The outside was first painted in a mixture of Medium Grey Value 6, with a touch of Paynes Grey.
The stencilling was done with a Prima Stencil and DecoArt Media Crackle Paste in White. I mixed a small amount of Titanium White into the Paste to brighten the white further and give it a good contrast against the grey background.
A close up of the DecoArt crackle texture paste and the Tim Holtz Heart Charm and Ball Chain embellishment.
A view of the back.  Cord from my stash was added to the top and bottom to finish the edges off.  There is plenty of room inside the case to tuck a nice gift in, the finished case measures 4.1/2" wide, 2.1/2" deep and 3.3/4" tall.

I hope you like what I created and I also hope you will join in the challenge at Art With Heart - Eileen's prizes are always worth winning!

As always, thanks for looking and I hope to see you soon.  Hugs, Anne xx

  3. Fantastic Anne!!! I had to do a double take to realise that this was made from matboard as it looks so lifelike. The new range of Eileen's dies is super and it's clear you're having fun with them and the Decoart paints, to great effect! Jenny x
