ATC Match Box

This is a project I have been working on for a few weeks (in amongst everything else I have been playing with!).

It is based on a 7 Gypsies match box kit.

To start with, I stamped up the base with a PaperArtsy stamp with 4 leaf designs. I inked the whole stamp with one colour and then splodged a square of another over it to break it up, but still echo the squares.
The cover of the box was stamped flat and then put together afterwards.  The thumb print was a happy accident (there are no mistakes in craft, and I didn't think a butterfly would really work here!)
I kept the colour pallette simple so that everything linked together. The ribbons, buttons and steam punk scissors come from a selection at Its Crafting time, as did the match box and most of the inks.
Oh, and Annie - Puss always like to help at some stage!
