One Altered Tin........4 Challenges

I have to say I am soooo hooked on pens at the moment. I have a small selection of Promarkers.... & thanks to the wonderful Debbie at Passion for Crafts I have a set of Copics winging their way to me in her wonderful blog candy.
I have created an altered art tin & I have managed to fit it into 4 challenges... just. Here they are.....

Pollycraft Challenge#28... No Cards Allowed
Cute Card Thursday Challenge #86...Glitter Me Silly
Secret Crafter #58... Four Seasons
Allsorts Challenge#27... For A Child

This is only the 3rd proper Altered project I have tackled & I think it is going to be interesting to see how long it is before it starts falling to bits lol!!! I am afraid there are quite a few piccies but here goes.

This project started out as a plain metal cappuccino tin. I used the Thomas with Puppy image from Pollycraft along with a Christmas Tree freebie that Paula put on her blog a few weeks ago. I did a little magic in Paint Shop Pro to bring the 2 images together. This was coloured in mainly using Promarkers but I did have to cheat with a couple of other pens thrown in.

The backing paper I have used is Princess Snowflakes. This is one of the Sandylion Disney range. I added ribbon & gems around the top & bottom of the tin.

The snowflakes are cut from glittered card using a new cuttlebug die that I bought from Secret Crafter. It is called Snowflake #2. Each snowflake is made up of 2 snowflakes & I have stuck them together using glue gel to give a bit of dimension.

I am not sure if you can se it properly but I have used Star Dust Stickles on the trees & the snow & Turquoise Stickles on Thomas's hat.

On the lid of the tin I have edged the lid with lilac ribbon from my stash & added a circle of Princess Snowflakes paper. The flower has been created by 3 leaves that were left over from some buttonholes that I made earlier on in the year, a white Papermania flower that I coloured with my Denim Blue Promarker & a Prima Camelot Rose from the Vanessa set.

Well take care everyone & pop back tomorrow to see what I have created for this weeks MAWTT challenge x Clare x
