A Match Made in Heaven

Well, not really. At our January SALSA club meeting (a Tucson, AZ stamp club) those of us who wanted to participate in the Mystery Item swap were given a small empty match box.  I hemmed and hawed tying to come up with an idea.  I found my Wobbles but they were too big. So to Pinterest I went and did a search on matchbox.  OMG!  There were some fabulous ideas!! I searched my stash to see what I could use and this is what developed.....

I made a suit case!  I found some old print paper (FSJ's retired Sunday Adventure Prints available now for a limited time!), grabbed some Kiwi Slice paper and cut some tiny strips and I was off and running. I added some green marker to the edges from my Arteza Real Brush Pens to kinda age it then splatted with Black Licorice Silk.

This is the inside.  I adhered more of the Sunday Adventure prints, stamped the envelope from the Sending My Love stamp set with River Stone ink, stamped the text over it with Black Licorice ink, adhered it and added the flower from the retired FSJ Beauty Blooms package.

I'm trying to use up some of my retired stash but that may take the rest of my life...  Do you have this problem??
