Altered Matchbox DT It's Crafting time

This week the DT members of It's Crafting Time where asked to create something using Newspaper.So i had this lovely big christmas match box i deceided to alter.I fist gave it a covering of Gesso.

Let the gesso dry naturaly,and i then added few coats of distress stains Vintage photo.

I lined the inside of the matchbox with newspaper which was also distressed.I then cut some images from the lovely Dezinaworld. I then distressd some SU white cardstock with distressinks and stamped TimHoltz sentiment with black arcvhival ink and stuck to the front of the matchbox stuck the first image onto the front and added Glossy Accesnts to his hat.For the old key i used Tim Holtz Altered Metal Alcohol inks technique


The bak i used an ideology ticket and grunge alphabet and distressed then added Glossy accents to enhance it.Added somemore ideology embellishments

Hello Jude, a lot of work has gone into this box and the tag in your previous post and I like them both. Isn't the sentiment just so true too :) Elizabeth x
