Inspired by the More Mixed Media Challenge

Hi All....

Today is very much an April showers day.....and dull, really dull! Plus I have a cold...grrr. I must say I'm looking fab though with a bit of tissue stuck up one nostril as that one is a leeky tap at the mo!! I know...gross image....back into my corner goes I!!

So to cheer my day I altered this sweetie tin....


Acrylic Paint
Ink Pad
Sweetie Tin

Firstly I gessoed the tin, then used a mix of DecoArt fluid acrylics in primary yellow, cadmium orange hue and cadmium red hue which I applied with a brush any old how...started with the lightest colour.
Then I stamped onto the tin using a selection of PaperArtsy stamps (primarily from the Eclectica  range), using Snowflake Fresco paint. I then spattered the tin with Little Black Dress.
I painted a piece of card with primary yellow and stamped the large Stampotique flower several times and the little one too (so it didn't feel left out...) with black Archival ink.
I curled the flower petals, layered them up, stuck them together, glued the result to the tin ....

Well, not quite. Big thank you to all who read this far. 
THANK YOU!! xxxx
