2 Tins




Alcohol inks of course as the main colour for both tins, this first one has a stamped image with Viva terra used to frame it and then covered with glossy accents .






Again the terra paste coloured with distress inks and perfect pearls , I embossed the flower stems but choose the wrong colour so it didn't show up the way I planned and went over it with stickles, the chipboard flowers are painted with distress paint with liquid pearls for the centers.

I enjoyed making these tins for a swap ...... steep learning curve for me as I had never done this before but I'm happy with the way they turned out ......... so what is the best paint for tins ??? everything I try came off to easily so ended up using sharpies.

Thanks for looking and any advice very welcome :)
