PSX Portland Head Light Stamped and Painted

I started making another card this morning, but it was so nice out I decided to do something I could make outdoors instead. I painted the bottom of this wooden box with Barn red, and the top with sky blue. Then I stamped one of my old PSX stamps on it, and painted the stamp with acrylic paint with a medium added so it would be more of a wash than an opaque painted effect.

I used Stazon to stamp it because I knew the paint and varnish wouldn't affect the Stazon. The box wasn't rough, and I sanded it, but the label in the bottom corner didn't quite cover. I decided to leave it as it is because I was afraid I would mess it up if I tried to fix it.

Everything in the gift shop my mother and I run is made by us, so sometimes I have to do something besides a card, and I thought this came out rather nice. I just have to varnish it and clean up the latch a bit and it will be done.
