Valentines Tin

I finally had a chance to sit and play with the new techniques that Pat shared in the technique junkies newsletter! I created this tin topper for a tin that I found at the dollar store. This one is stamped with my brother in mind :) I used the brayer tapping technique for the background colour and the block collage technique for the stamping. All stamps are CTMH as are the inks (which matched the tin's red perfectly :)) The ribbon is CTMH as well! I can't wait to make more of these to hide little brownies in...
It does feel plain to me, any suggestions to jazz it up a bit?? I am a bit challenged when it comes to the finishing touches, alas....something I am trying to work on!


  1. Oh, I don't think this is plain at all, Connie! I think it's wonderful -- your brother is just going to feel so special getting this from you.

  2. Beautiful tin! What about outlining the tractor with glitter.


Hi! Please stop and say hi. I love to know I'm not alone out there!
