LOVE TIN...

Helloooo...hope you have all had a lovely Easter break XXXX

For those of you who took a look at my blog for last weeks WOYWW ...some wanted to know what I was working on with the metal.  Weeelllll.....this was the first time I had felt brave enough to have a go but I think I did it ok. 

I was decorating a little tin that I snaffled from hubby (it came with one of his gadgets in haha).  The tin is about 5x2inches.  I went over it first with alcohol inks then added some lace to cover the manufacturers imprint.  Then I got the metal out.  This was stamped and, with the help of my newly aquired tools, fiddled with till I thought it was right hahaha.  I stuck the metal pieces onto card with GA before cutting out...



The little glass-looking flower was a gift from my lovely blogging friend Cheryl...thanks my lovely XXX

Thank you for looking today, enjoy the rest of your week, HUGS XXX
