Altered Cigar Box for Ephemera's Vintage Garden

Hello Scrappy Friends!  Today I'm sharing another project I created with images and background papers from the Miss Lady Fay Digital Paper Pack and Printable Art Journal Elements (direct links to the products are below).  The images from Ephemera's Vintage Garden are always so crisp and vivid, and they appear so dimensional.  The corrugation and mixed media patterns on this background paper look so real, it just begs to be touched!  All of the printables lend themselves to so many other projects as well as gorgeous art journals.  I used Martha Stewart Crackle medium and Folk Art acrylic paints to decorate the box prior to using matte Mod Podge to apply my background paper.  After the crackled finish was dry, I rubbed the box with Gilder's Paste in Rich Gold to give it a really aged look.
