I am hosting a challenge on the CMB called craft wars. The main theme is to use recyled materials in some way. For the second challenge it is to alter a tin, box, container, etc. I normally have been going towards the altoids tins, but I decided to try something different and alter two tin cans.
I inked some Simple Stories paper and wrapped and adhered to the inside and out of the can with matte medium.
I actually really liked this and almost stopped there and just added a little bit of embellies - but decided to go all the way.
This step freaked me out a bit. I took a little bit of water on my finger and rubbed some of the paper off. I was second guessing myself here.
I used inka gold on the top and bottom rims and the bottom of the can. Then I used alcohol inks and the dabber in rust, caramel, latte, and copper and pounced in spots all over the can.
