Altered Cigar Box

Hey Ladies!!
I'm back.. I have been MIA for a little over a month! I was sick for a while then decided to read some books. I read the Fifty Shades of Grey Trilogy last week! Whew I love it! haahhaa.
So I signed up for my first swap over at minialbumscraps.ning.com so here is my completed project. I used the Coural Couture stack by DCWV.
 I painted the entire box with Orange acrylic paint then used Weathered Wood crackle medium and added white acrylic paint on top. I used a bunch of IAR and WOC goodness on this box.
