Bee Mine?

A bit late for Valentine's but there are still a few challenges out there not least one of my favourite's The Octopode Factory Friday Challenge. A heart? An octopode image?  (not essential!!) Well it had to 'bee' this one.

I thought I'd mix it up with the Out of A Hat Challenge which is to alter a matchbox. More  decorating than altering in my case because this is made up from a template, nevertheless this was fun to do and gave me an excuse to use my pink bubblegum dylusion spray - yum!! The larger than normal size meant I could actually make something to go inside (I really struggle to find things small enough with regular sized matchboxes).








However if you like altered matchboxes do go and have a look at this one which I did a few years ago now - love this!! I wonder if it is still intact.

And just because I can, I'm also linking this in with the Artful Times 'Anything with colour'. I think it might qualify!!
