Alter a Tin or Jar
Hi Folks it's time for another chaleenge over on the Crafting with Dragonflies challenge blog. This fortnight, we are challenging you to alter a tin or a jar, and it would be great to see your before and after photos.
I have chosen to alter a jar that contained some scrumptious marshmallows that we treated ourselves to before Christmas. In the name of crafting, they had to be finished off so that I could use the jar of course!
I painted the lid in a toffee colour, and once it was dry, I added various colours of metallic gilding wax in tones of brown and gold to make it look more aged. I printed my image onto kraft card and coloured it with pencils. I cut it out using a ticket die from Tim Holtz. I used a smaller die from the same set and a stamp from Paper Artsy on another scrap piece of kraft card. Some brown lace and ribbon were all that were needed to finish my jar.
Our sponsor this week is Digistamps4joy and Margy is offering a prize of $10 to spend in the store to the winner.
Thanks for stopping by, xx
