Vintage Travel CHA Release- Tool Chest

Back again with another look at Eileen Hull's new Vintage Travel Sizzix Dies.  This time the Tool Chest.  This is such an adorable die is perfect to store treats, gift cards or small tools creating the perfect masculine gift box.
 
 
I instantly knew this Tool Chest was going to be red!


I sprayed the whole thing with distress spray stain fired brick.

 
I added a strip of foiled metal then embossed with my diamond plate texture fade.

 
Little hinges to keep it closed.

 
I cut a mini ticket with more foiled metal and stamped with my mini stamps and rubs for "tools 4 sale".

 
I distressed the edges and inked with black soot distress ink. 

 
Thank you so much for all your support.  I always appreciate it and you keep me inspired.
 
Check out the rest of the Inspiration Team and their amazing Vintage Travel creations.

UPDATE:
 
My Vintage Travel projects are now on display along with the rest of the very talented design team's projects!
