Altered Tin

before 


after

This is my actual working table. I have been keeping the empty milk can to store my stationery mainly because it is free, just the right size and of course, I thought of altering it someday (which has been lying on the table for months and months...great procrastinator..lol).  Now, it is the right time to call for some crafty touch-up...
materials:
Martha Stewart pinking scallop border punch, Carl flower punch, buttons, Spellbinder Shapeabilities flourish accent, digital bird image which I paper-piece with paper downloaded from Crafter's Companion Everyday Twin-set.

Challenges:
  1. Crop Stop - may nightingales (use either bird, birdcage, birdnest and some textured)
  2. Loathian's Craft - three flowers and three buttons
  3. Simon Says - anything goes
  4. Simon Stamp & Show - buttons
  5. Paperplay - use an object not intended for crafting (mine is empty milk tin)
  6. Stamp Something -things with wings
  7. Try It On Tuesday - alter tin (sponsored by The Craft Barn)
  8. Charisma Cardz - april showers may flowers
TFL.

This is wonderful! Love the sweet spring feeling to it. Great job on altering that can.

And personally, thanks for affirming my urge to alter a soup can that my daughter left on the counter this afternoon. I looked at it and suddenly I could see it in my mind's eye, altered and sitting on my craft desk. Then I said to myself, you are going dotty, you definitely need to get out of that craft room - true story, happened just this afternoon - LOL.

Anyway, great job on the button challenge. So happy you joined in the fun with us this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show.
