My first Match box (spring)

Hello blog land. The sun is out here hope it's nice for you where ever you are. This is my very 1st Match Box I bought four. I have been waiting forever for mine but I don't use them that much (the odd candle) I'll tell you more about my MB in a wee while first let's use it for some challenges he he. Alter it Monthly (AIM) is a new challenge blog and this is the first one.  The title says it all. Every month there will be something to alter, this month it's a 'Match box' Allsorts  is no DPs, none on this any where! I am also using this for the Play Date Cafe (PDC) as always a lovely colour challenge. All DTs are wonderful please pop over for full details of requirements.


To make this MB I got three alcohol inks two blues and a pearl I used the blues first and some blending solution then when dry applied the pearl, gives it a lovely shimmer. I have covered the top of the matchbox with acitate and stamped with stazon. inside the MB is some material and a daffodil.


I think the DT for matchbox alteration have done a far better job than myself but I just wanted to have a little play and see what I could dome up with in a morning. I hope you like this altered art and I hope you have a go your self, please leave a comment, I would love to see what you have been up to I have many very talented followers. I also follow many talented people why not pop a long a blog you haven't been to before, it's something I like to do when I go to a blog if they have a list I love to try a new blog or too you will be amazed what you can find. Have a great day. Love Dawn xx



Items Used:- Match box from fruit pixie Alcohol inks Ranger. Daffodil, Stash. Material, Ikea. Butterfly, stash.

thank you so much for taking part.. and there is no need to say the DT ones are better as its not our first attempts.. ( i could show you a few very sad efforts from me but i wont lol ) .. SO well done you as your first is bursting with spring freshness.. and its a beautiful attempt... they are so small and fiddly . I often cheat and use a giant matchbox lol... nice daff by the way ;)
