Day 4...Halloween Trinket Box

Today I chose to make a trinket box for all the little goodies I want to keep for Halloween. I found these little boxes at Michael's a while ago when they were on clearence! This one was on clearence because one of the little screws on the clasp was missing so I scored with a 50 cent box!!!! I don't need no stinkin clasp! LOL For this one I painted it black and then used silver distressed crackle paint from Tim Holtz. I then stamped my images into clay, and after it baked and cooled I painted them. The witch on her broom I base coated in gray, then wiped off with a papertowel. Then brushed walnut ink stain over it and also wiped it off with a papertowel. Finally I brushed black paint on the high points. For the words, Witching you...a Haunting Halloween, I wanted to go darker with, so I used black and purple on them. So there it is my Halloween trinket box.
