GAS MAMMA Matchbox Swap



This month's challenge is alter a matchbox and the theme is to be on travel. This matchbox was inspired by the stamp I used which shows a map with a yatch in full sail. I wondered which ocean I would like to sail and where I would go. I have always wanted to go to the Seychelles so this was my destination. The matchbox was made with Gio's pattern and the painted with a mixture of acrylics using a brayer. After stamping I stenciled the nautical compas and added the jewels to define the letter N, (I guess I was setting out from Austrialia). More jewels line the sides of the box. Inside I put a map of the Seychelles, a holiday brochure and some rupees. I hope you like my travel matchbox
