More Pen Pots!

So today, I'm following yesterday's blog post by showing you 
2 more pen pots I made!
      Pen Pots by The Crippled Crafter.
Again I constructed the pots from the greyboard sheets using masking tape to secure the pieces.  I then added tissue paper to give more stability as well as texture and a good ground for painting onto. 
I crinkled the tissue paper this time rather than applying it smoothly.  This resulted in the fab rustic bumpy look you see here!

The inside of the pots is painted with Mushroom Chalk Paint (from Creative Expressions).
I tinted more of the Mushroom Chalk Paint with DecoArt Fluid Acrylic in Dioxazine Purple and used this to paint the outside of the pots.  
I painted the excess purple paint onto white cardstock and this was used for the background behind the dog silhouette.  Before I got to that stage though, I used a Crackle stamp by Tim Holtz along with some more chalk paint on the painted card.
