Tilda + Co String Challenge
The challenge at Tilda + Co this week is string. I have altered a paint tin and decorated it with images of Tilda + Edwin which I have stamped, coloured and cut out. I coloured the tin lid and edges with alcohol inks. The idea is I will put loose change in it to save up for new stamps!!! The papers are from the K + Co storage file with 200 papers which I got last weekend and the flowers are Primas.

Gorgeous little tin.I love the colur scheme.
I really ought to use my alcohol inked tins for other things now that the AI's have a new home.
I've been off line a fair bit this weekend getting some crafting done just for me. Few page layouts & tidying up projects made on the retreat & my own CJ to complete now its back in my home.
Hope you are having a great weekend.
