Altered Cigar Box

I signed up for a swap, where we were to alter a cigar box.  This being my first altered cigar box, I found it somewhat of a challenge, a challenge that I was willing to accept.

Inspiration for my theme was suggested by the person that was assigned as my swap partner. . .Shabby Chic.  The main technique was inspired by Tim Holtz's "Enameled Metals" for the book, A Compendium of Curiosities Vol. II.

Some Glossy Accents Crackle, some Peeled Paint Distress Stain.

Inside some bling and a daisy colored with Vintage Photo Distress Stain.

Inside bottom interesting wallpaper samples that I have had in my collection for many years,  this being the perfect opportunity to part with one sheet.

And for a little surprise, using the left over images, note cards for my swap partner.

I hope you like my first attempt at Altered Cigar Boxes.
