When I saw these Lost Coast designs doll stamps I knew they would be ideal for an altered matchbox. I have never made one before and have seen quite a few on other blogs so was inspired to have a go. I imagined a Victorian child playing with this.
I started by painted the whole box with black gesso. Then I stamped the doll stamps on white stamping card and coloured with distress inks and watercolours. I place the matchbox onto the stamped card and drew around it then cut out and glued in place with matte medium. I sanded the edges down, then buffed the edges with distress ink in black soot. I also lined the inside of the box. I added a Tim Holtz hitch fastener to the draw, then I stamped and cut out two of the dolls and placed inside the draw with some lace.
