Distressed Medieval Matchbox

Made this little Matchbox with two new stamps I bought a while ago and only just getting round to using them. They look so medieval (quite gothic in fact) that I wanted to create a touch of opulance to the mix so added some gold embossing powder randomly around the edges which gave me the distressed look I was aiming for. One image was stamped with Versafine black and the other with Versafine Vintage Sepia.

Made the match box with a Stampin Up Envelope maker … this little gadget is super cool … then used Gesso to dilute the colour of the papers on the outside. Tim’s Harlequin stencil came into play but only a little also used some of the DI Seedless Preserves for her hair.

Opened the box a little for the next pic and the last one shows off the other stamped image inside. Only used a few embellies to enhance the images, a bit of gold beading and two buttons.

Can you believe the papers are from Graphic 45 the Mother Goose collection.
