Mini week:

Hi everyone,
Starting to think about Easter makes and gifts? Well look no further for amazing inspiration with this lovely altered tin made by Michelle.



I had my first play with Paper Artsy Fresco paints today and will definitely be using them more. They have a great matt finish and are wonderful for stamping on! What's more they don't need an undercoat even on tin!

So I painted the tin and stamped it with the scroll stamp . Then I stamped the tree stamp and cut it to fit the lid of the tin and coloured it with a little ink.
I made the eggs with Pardo clay which I then coloured with the fresco paints.
I'm looking now to find a really good sentiment to put with it as a tag so if you know the right stamp, please let me know and I think I'll use it as an Easter gift for someone special!



To make the tin I used
Tiny tins: pack of 10
PaperArtsy Fresco Finish paints: London night, Mushroom, Vintage lace, Ice blue
Rub 'n Buff: Antique white
CI-259- Four tree stamps
CI-182 - Crafty Individual big swirl
Ultra thick embossing powder (Ranger): clear
Pardo Clay
