Altered Tin



I've been working on this tin over the weekend and have finished it this evening. I just wanted to make something for no reason other than doing it and this is the end result! In a former life the tin was a puncture repair kit. I've sanded and coloured it with spray alcohol inks and added metal bits and bobs, a chopped up photo, Titanium earring, fuse with added text ("dolce") and a quote. I'm pleased with it and it may even find it's way onto Etsy! *gulp*
