Altered tin lid.

This
This is the lid off a tin of Roses chocolates. i scraped some of the original paint off it but got bored and just inked the outside with versamark and embossed it with silver powder. the rest I used alcohol inks and clear embossing powders on.I have deliberately made some bits clear and glossy and left other bits with a rougher texture and appearance and the tiniest sprinkles of silver powder just to see how it would look. Hopefully just a tad careworn, as thats what I was aiming for.
I have begun to take the paint off the bottom partof the tin, but got sidetracked so goodness knows when I will finish it now that I have left it a day or two.

Don't hold your breath waiting,lol. I have got very distracted as I now have a meltpot and have also bought the new docraft christmas goodie bag.... plus the great stamps and powders which are the subscriber gift for Craft Stamper mag.Soooo I am going to be trying out my new stuff. On top of which I got bored scraping the paint off, so I might cheat and cover it with papers instead.
