Making things has always been really personal for me. I have cried when journaling scrapbook pages and everything I make and give is intensely special. Some times you need to make things for sad occasions. I made this for a friend; I struggled to find the right things to say he's not a gushing type of man so I wanted to let him know we are here.
Tim Holtz Alteration Matchbook die, the larger of the two on the plate and cut it in grunge paper. This lovely flexible stuff worked well. I then coloured it with Broken China and Picket fence distress stains and distressed just about everything in sight with Vintage photo ink.
