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 :)

A visit to Lucy's

Popped round to Lucy's a couple of weeks ago and did some stamping and brayering some on glossy card and also on matt card, I used the Kaleidacolor ink pads gives a different look to the big and juicy ones. Oh and I left Lucy with my speed ball brayer to play with, so wonder how she got on ?
The faux stamp backgrounds were done with the brayer on matt card stock
Thanks for looking :)
