Try it on Tuesday - Alter a tin.

Hope everyone enjoyed the Easter break and the lovely sunny weather.
We had visitors up from London, my brother in law and his wife which was really lovely as we don't get to see them as often as we would like.

Now on to this weeks challenge over at Try it on Tuesday. The challenge this week is chosen by my good self and it's to alter a tin.  When I made a start on my project I began to wonder why I had made this my choice. I had loads of tins lying about but what to do with them. 

This is the tin I decided to 

alter and here it is transformed

I stamped onto some lilac velum using a Crafty Individuals swirl stamp and the Mountain Meadow Big and Juicy pad. I cut a panel to fit the side and then some nestie layers to create the flower. I coloured the edge of the lid using a Copic marker. Added some ribbon brad and heart trimmings, all from my stash.

The challenge this week is sponsored by our good friends at the Craft Barn, so to be in with a chance of winning their voucher don't forget to give them a mention and link them in your post.
So please do visit the TioT challenge blog to get some inspiration and I look forward to seeing the fabulous creations that our fantastic followers come up with.
Thank you so much for visiting today and I hope you have a good day even though the sun has made an exit.
