Lovely Lady Tin

Here's another altered tin. I think I'm addicted to alcohol ink.. hehe I love the way the alcohol ink gives the tin an old vintage look. I've taken a two piece silver tin an altered it to look like a shadow box. Filled it with tiny treasures.

Old Tin Shadow Box

I was inspired by Tina Walker to try my own tins from a project she did and showed on her blog, her link is below. I love the look of something old and vintage. This shadow box started out as a 4" x 3" metal tin I picked up at our local craft store. Using an Inkssentials 4 1/4" x 51/2"sheets of Foil tape with my embossing folder from The Paper Studio "A2 Gears", I ran it through my embosser and created the gears texture that I placed on both the lid and back of the tin.  I then added three different colors tones of brown Adirondack alcohol inks to the foil and inside edges of the tin. Heat set it. I then pulled out three colors of my Melt Art ultra thick embossing enamel by Ranger and added a cool melted texture to the foiled areas. I give the whole piece a spray with a sealer and begin adding paper and fun vintage objects to the inside and out of the tin. Check out my video (link below) to hear more on how I put this together.

Thanks for stopping by and please leave a comment on what you think about this project.
