Altered Steampunk Tin by Carol Fox

Hello,  Carol here with my post for this week. I cannot believe how quickly Thursday comes around each week, but here I am again, and this week I have altered a Marks and Spencer’s Mint Tin. I really think it’s now got to the point where I eat the mints just for the tin! 

I sanded the tin to remove all the paint and then gave it a wipe to remove any dusty residue. Using an applicator I applied Bottle and Stream alcohol ink directly to the tin. I sealed it with a quick coat of Multi Medium, I then stamped the image directly using Black StazOn ink.

I added a small charm from my stash to the corner and there it is, a cute tin that now keeps my pen nibs safe on my window sill.


I used 

Alcohol Inks: Stream & Bottle
Glossy Accents to glue on the charm

Thank you for visiting and see you next week,
