I DARE YOU!!


This is my I dare you for Joey. My dare was to make an altered matchbox and here it is. It doesnt photograph very well but I like it in real life. Its all covered in aluminium tape and gold foil tape in places, then alcohol inked. You cant see in the picture but the base of the inside drawer is a piece of aluminium that i've embossed to say time. Then there are some watch bits and dials set into UTEE. On the top is a piece of gold chain holding a little gold bead, you cant see it but it is there. The outside is again alum tape and gold tape and inks but with the strap of an old watch attach to look like a belt holding it all together. Fingers crossed she likes it okay!
