Altered Tin Can

Altered Tin Can
         Hi friends sharing an altered tin can which I made to store some craft supplies like floral tapes and decorative tapes.
Alcohol Ink coloring
        The tin can was lined with a lovely printed glitter foam sheet and I added lace to the top and lower borders. Added a purplish pink butterfly made by heat embossing in white on an Alcohol Ink colored metallic card [ Here are  tutorial links:  Alcohol Ink IntroductionAlcohol Ink Techniques 1Alcohol Ink Techniques 2 ]
Inlaid Diecutting
I used 2 shades of glitter foam to create an inlaid die cut " Happy" [ Here is how you can do Inlaid Die Cutting]
Ribbon Roses
Bordered the die cut panel with ribbon roses and golden heat embossed water colored leaves [ used Akashiya Sai watercolor brush pens to color the leaves]
Heat Embossed Butterfly
        The golden heat embossed butterfly [ made with a Hero Arts stamp] was water colored in various shades of pink and purple.
3 D decoupaged Rose
         And my favorite 3 D decoupaged rose made by heat embossing , water coloring, fuzzy cutting and layering multiple stamped roses from the gorgeous Winnie and Walter In Bloom Elsa's Flora Stamp Set !
3 D decoupaged Rose
           I also added a few  leaves die cut from silver glitter foam using some favorite Marianne dies .The golden leaves are also from the same Winnie Walter set and they match so perfectly with the roses!
Foam Craft Stationery Set
          This purple- pink tin joins my Paint Brush Holder and Altered Purple Box to complete a set !
