Alter it!



Had this little tin waiting to be altered for about 3 years now! As the challenge over at Charisma Cardz is to alter something it gave me the push I needed to get on with it. The tin will be used to hold ATC's which I have made specifically as a memory to my Mum who passed away 3 years ago so I wanted to to be special. I covered the tin in Anna Griffin Decoupage finish, peeled the 2 ply off a 3ply rosebud tissue and smoothed this over the top and round the sides and then allowed to dry. I added another layer of the decoupage finish, dried it again and then sanded and buffed it. The image is from the fairy's digi download from Charmed cards which I coloured with promarkers, cut out and glittered the wings with sparkle dust. I put a sticky ribbon across the lid where her arms would sit, added a sticker sentiment and stuck the image to the tin. I added a little bow as my Mum always made my bows for me for crafting. I'm pretty pleased with the finished result.
