Take an old drinks can ,die cuts
and some alcohol markers and what do you get !!
I saw Mary do something wonderful with an empty soda can on her blog
and filed it away for future use as I had an idea for using tin.
Skip forward a few months and I was ready to have a go myself.
I had carefully kept a couple of tins which I had washed out and left to dry.
Surprisingly, cutting them up was really easy.
The tin sheets went through my Big Shot with no problems too.
This is the result.
I wanted to make an anniversary card to depict 10yrs (tin).
The anniversary was yesterday and the card has been received
so I can now show and tell.
DP is by Raspberry Road 'Ancient Age Collection no1.'
SU Card Stock for the Stepper card shape.
Britannia word die for the sentiments
Spellbinders 'Rose Creations Die for the flower and leaf.
Odd tassel found on my desk .
(Not sure where it came from but waste not want not and it was the right colour!)
Promarkers used to colour the tin shapes once cut.
View showing Side Stepper shape , a new one for me.
Back view for writing sentiment on.
Spellbinders 'Deckled Rectangles' Die.
Close up showing the distressed edges.
Using T.H. Distresser.
This is another gadget I have a love/hate relationship with.
I'm told I'm not rough enough with it so this time I went to town on it!
