An Altered Matchbox

Almost too late but just my the skin of my teeth I have an altered match box for the April challenge at Alter It Monthly . The matchbox is made from Ten Second Studio metal using the template Zuzu had found. The metal was embossed and "aged" with some Espresso paint dabber. And what do I keep in my matchbox? Well some pretty hot stuff, as DH is going away for a week he has left me his love.

Hi Moira, so glad you made it:), I love the design of the metal and the aged effect that has been created using the expresso dabber. What more can you ask for but the heart of a loved one x

Ah! Love it Moira!

I'm very into metal on my men's cards at the mo. All my closest menfolk have birthdays over the past few weeks so I've really been on a roll with them.
