Sunday share Altered art

Happy Sunday! Today I wanted to share a fun altered art project I have been working on.  I have this sweet die from Sizzix© that cuts these mini suitcases out of mat board.

They are the perfect size for gift cards or small greeting cards or like this one, holding a mini book that can be used for photos or art journaling. The suitcase goes together really easily, is super sturdy and has lots of area for altering. 

I picked up a stack of scrap mat board last year from H-L for about $5.00.  I used some of it for practicing different mixed media techniques, but some of it was so pretty with different textures that I couldn't make myself paint over it, so the stack sat in my studio until I got this die.  I have made several of them, now I'm just waiting for the perfect occasion to personalize them and give them away.

This one is altered with several of my favorite things, polka dots and paint spatters, tags, collage and altered metal findings that I made with aluminum tape and embossing folders.  So fun!

I am linking this post to a couple of challenges so click on these links to visit the other artwork posted on their sites.
