Viva Las Vegastamps Folds 'Em with Scor Pal

Scor Pal enhances art I stamp with Viva Las Vegastamps images!  It is there to inspire me to think outside the box with my designs.  Two designs were created for this blog hop.  It started on Monday, VLVS Blog.

For the first project, designed paper was designed on cardstock before scoring it into a pillow box.  I played with designs from my own and a coloring page and used graphite transfer paper to transfer the design.
 Each area was colored with Sakura of America Cray Pas - Expressionist Oil Pastels to color parts, then use odorless mineral spirits and a watercolor brush to break down the binder in the oil pastel and paint the areas.  I love shading and blending colors.
Sakura of America's Micron Pen .03 was used to outline the pencil image I transferred.  I did this before the Cray Pas, and touched up after. 

 Scor Pal makes it easy to line up your paper and scor the way the art needs to.  Google "templates" if you need patterns for creating specialized shapes, and Scor Pal has comprehensive information with measurements to make envelopes and boxes.
 The image is a Mary Logel Vozinak image from VLVS.  The  wind-up bunny is colored with Sakura of America Gelly Roll Pens.  The sentiment is cut out, edged and put on the box after some embellishing.
A simple box made special with VLVS images!!!  I made the box first and then used a grid to punch holes out.  You can do as many as I did or do just a few.  There is cardstock with stamped patterns inside the box so the pattern shows through the front.  The tag is a "double tag," patterned paper with plain paper on top that has been stamped.
There are alot of stamp images, so here they are:
Miracle Tape 1/8"

Cut out template shape and then score.   

I did a different painting technique with Cray Pas and mineral oil.  I colored plastic with the Cray Pas, then I used the mineral oil to break down the binders.  Then painted to accent the box top.

Here is a shot showing how easy it is to use Miracle Tape to make box, etc.  This image is showing that I am putting it around the perimeter of the inside of the box so I can adhere stamped cardstock.  When you turn it over, the patterns show through.
