..yes it started out life as a plain sardine tin, but then I attacked it !!
First I covered it with texture paste, let it dry then gave it a coat of brown acylic paint topped of with Rusty Hinge distress stickles. Then glued two large beads for feet.
The stamp set I've used is "Hoist the Flags" by Lindsay Mason
I cut an oval of white card and a strip to fit inside the tin, then stamped the scene so it carried on all round the tin. I'm amazed I got it all to match up !! Stamped the little boy, girl plus bunting onto some more white card, coloured using pastel promarkers and fussy cut out.
From paper clay I made some stones to go in the bottom and then covered with stickles so I could stand the little boy up
Using a Marianne die I cut a tree out, coloured it and chopped it up and re-arranged it on the left.
Finished off with stamping the sentiment, cutting it out, adding the bunting and little girl, topped out with some green stickles !!
Ta dah.... one decorated sardine tin !!
