Altered tin

The challenge on Sunday Stamper this week was to use green and perhaps link also to the 'altered tin' challenge on Objet d'art. So I took a tin that had Maya Road ribbon slides in originally and used alcohol inks to tint it green. I put a Crafty Individuals miniature background inside the bottom of the tin and added a key, then printed the wording to stick on the transparent lid (which was also slightly tinged with alcohol ink).

As this contains a key it's also good for last weeks Lots to do challenge 4: keys. And another one for the challenge on Ooh-la-la 27: love is in the air/Valentine.

Sue's new challenge on JB - 6:I can see clearly now - as the lid is made of acetate, I think this qualifies.

For the current challenge on Arty Girlz we are asked to use something clear or transparent on a creation, so this does that.
