Altered Tin



Since I just returned from my trip to London (alas, it was London, Kentucky, not UK) I thought I'd show something I made a couple weeks ago -- an altered tin. The heart shaped tin is from Foof-la-la. I first covered it with Alcohol Inks (Ranger), but you can't see the sides and bottom from this picture. You'll have to trust me that it turned out very nicely:0)



I covered the top with paper and ribbon from K&Co., a flourish stamp by Rhonna Farrer, and the bird image is from the book Memories of a Lifetime. Inside I used more images by MOAL and Crafty Secrets. Stamps by Sugarloaf, StampinUp, Stampington & Stampabilities.
