Altered Matchbox with Gibson Girl

Hello Everyone,
Shilpa here,

Instead of my regular mixed media canvas, I decided to make 3D project with fabulous Artistic stamper stamps....and came up with this cute little Matchbox. 


I've decorated it with Gibson girl stamp image and other Artistic stamper stamps.

Here is step by step...


I created matchbox with Graphic 45 Typography/ Bohemian Bazar papers. Applied Vintage photo distress inks at the edges.
 


For top layer, I applied rusty hinge, walnut stain, peeled paint  distress stains on craft mat and  smooshed manila ATC paper into that. Dried it completely with Ranger heat tool.


I stamped flowers, text and envelope image with Artistic stamper stamps and Coffee Archival ink. And further started decorating it.

 

I stamped Gibson girl image on Ranger specialty stamping paper with Jet black Ranger archival ink and colored it with distress inks. I fussy cut the image. The Art tag behind her is from Graphic 45 Typography collection.
I added handmade flowers and mica flakes. And attached the whole panel onto the match box.

Hope you liked my creation and inspired to make your own. When you add small jewelry in it, that will be a  perfect gift for a friend!
