Altered Grungy Cigar Box

Hello everyone, hope you are having a wonderful day. I want to share with you, this altered cigar box tutorial I created, for Scrapbooking with M.E. Boutique with the June Kit. I used the Durable Paper Collection from Authentique.  Love the grunge look of this paper, makes it super easy to come up with some cool projects for that special guy in your life.

I began by painting the box with some Faded Jeans Distress Spray Stain and added a piece of the Authentique Durable Paper Collection on top of the box with some gel medium.  I really wanted the top of the box to have lot of layers. I then added some molding paste with some stencils.

The clip art of the antique cars are some I found on the internet for free and I printed them on some grunge paper and added  some of the Distress Crackle Paint in  Clear Rock Candy.  I am loving the cracked class look.

I added some recollection micro beads in copper, gold and silver and added some Lindy's Embossing Powder in the Kaiser Russet Red.

I hope you enjoy the tutorial, a couple of times I am out of frame and I am very sorry about that.
