Royal Tin

I made this over the course of two days, just kind of tinkering around-- no real plan for the outcome:

Supplies and notes:
  • Tin from the Asian market
  • Tin inked with AI in Ginger and Mushroom
  • Edges of tin painted with DecoArt Metallic in Rich Espresso; side edges were glitzed up a bit with Stickles in Mercury Glass
  • Library card cut to fit the base on both sides
  • Library card on inside of the tin coated with Distress Collage Medium- Crazing, then scribbled with Antiqued Bronze Distress Crayon and Walnut Stain Distress Crayon
  • Tim's fluted stars inverted and Tim's baubles placed inside, all adhered with E-6000 glue
  • Crown from Michael's bins hung from some wire (that actually came off of some cute bell xmas trim...); diamond trim that came off of one of my daughter's headbands years ago glued on the crown with E-6000
  • Prima rosary pearl trim added to top; I inked the silver chain part with Ginger AI-- the silver was too bright 
I'd like to share this at the following challenges:
