Step-by-step of altering a tin can!

 
I have this fun project today. A step-by-step of the altering process. I am going to use for stamps I'm collecting. They're always lying around everywhere!

*****

This is the giant tin can before altering. It contained some king size hotdogs LOL
.

Paint it with gesso, also the inside. Leave to dry.
Stamp the background stamp with a solvent ink onto tissue paper.Tear it into pieces.


Adhere the tissue paper with gelmediumto the tin can. Leave to dry!


Paint it with some watered-down creme acrylic paint. Leave to dry.

Color it with bundled sage distress ink, applying it straight from the pad. I added some scattered straw as well, just a hint.  I added some clear embossing powder to the tin, it sticks to the distress ink.
 Heat emboss it.
 

Stamp the background stamp with a solvent ink onto Shrinky Dink clear.  Diecut the flower.


Stamp small parts of the background stamp on a tag (this tag is a monoprint I've made a few weeks ago).
Adhere the flower to the tag. Attach the tag to the tin can.

Hope you like it!

  2. Wow, wow, wow... This is SO beautiful, Ellie - a magical transformation! I got half way through altering a tin can and never got round to finishing it; this is wonderful inspiration (though it will have to wait until May as I left it behind in the UK!).
