It's an age since I did a matchbox and I do like to work on mini projects so I signed up for a swap on Facebook run by Zuzu'sPetals.
I went for an oriental theme and finished it yesterday.
The matchbox is a tiny one and came flat in a pack. It is coloured with Lumiere Crimson paint with gold leaf added randomly all over to give it an aged look, then stamped with Japanese text. The mizhouki (?) knot is one I made a while ago and the stamped face added to the frame is covered with Glossy Accents - only just seen she has a bubble on her chin. The shrink plastic 'Geisha' completes the front.
Another geisha stamp on the inside with washi paper robe and background. The paper was wrapped round a bottle of wine - a gift from a Japanese family member (Mr B's cousin lives in Japan and his wife visited last month and brought lots of beautiful papers and silks). The image is raised on foam pads and a bit of German scrap added at the front.
Here's a view of the back of the box - hope the text isn't upside down.
