Altered Tin, by Kathy

Hi, it's Kathy today, and I've an "altered" tin to show you this time.  I've used papers from this month's showcase CD "V. Funky" to make a boring, empty mints tin into something a bit prettier.

You'll find masses of papers on this CD in a wide variety of colourways, and I've used some from the "Cottage Linens" section for this project - these papers are beautiful with soft, delicate colours and a little "Shabby Chic" in their feel

Materials and Tools

Papers: "Cottage Linens" from the Funky Hand  V.Funky  CD
the designs were all printed on textured white Bazzill card 
Blossom Flower Punch (SU)
Leaf Swirl die (Spellbinders) 
Corner Rounder punch
Ribbon, Cream Cotton Lace. 
pearls (tinted blue with Promarker pen) Ink for edging
Alcohol Inks to colour the tin

Here's how the tin looked before I attacked it:

 I used some dark coloured Alcohol Inks around the sides and any other bits I thought might show once the tin was finished.  I also added some ink to the inside of the tin as it seemed a bit too shiny!

Don't forget, this CD is on offer in the SHOP for just £1 at the moment so don't miss out! Here's a quick look at just some of the designs you'll get on the CD

We'd love to see what you make with Funky Hand goodies too.....
Thanks for visiting today
