Bean Tin




Loved the bean tins that Linda Elbourne has been doing so decided to have a go, but to use metal for the flowers etc. instead of grunge paper.  Covered the tin in copper metal, embossed on a TSS big daddy mould, sanded off tops of pattern.  I then made the embellishments using Wendy Vecchi stamps, which are absolutely fabulous, out of silver metal and then alcohol inked them with different colours.  Don't look too closely at the third photo because you can see the join, will have to find a way of overcoming that, but I have really enjoyed doing it and maybe will try again.

All products from Craft Den or my stash.

  6. Brilliant - you'll never believe me, but I fancied doing a tin myself - I have a tomato tin ready and waiting.

    Love your metal work - that is next on my list to attempt.

    I am always in for a pleasant surprise when I pop over to visit you - and lots of inspiration too.
