Altered Matchbox

I was looking through my photos today and realised I hadn't posted this. The recent Scrapstars retreat I went to had a pre-retreat challenge to decorate a match box, we then has to fill it with crafting goodies. The boxes were all judged and then swapped. I can tell you this was a real challenge for me I ruined two boxes before I came up with one that I thought was presentable. I knew I wanted to use a crackle effect on my box and this was my first attempt. It looked like a big dog poo and went straight in the bin. I used a mushroom coloured paint and then painted it with crackle glaze. I didn't realise it was a top coat that I had bought and I really wanted one that would go in between two layers of paint.
I gave it another go and bought a crackle medium this time and came up with this
