Altered Matchbox for Craft Stamper Challenge


This is my first ever altered matchbox I've made for February's Craft Stamper magazine challenge.

I painted the box with gold paint, stamped the torn paper with Crafty Individuals text stamp. The embellishments were stamped and made from shrink plastic. The tags were stamped with various images and a mica tag included. I used alcohol tags on a mica sheet and cut out.
