DT Project #1 by Minxy, featuring:

JillyBean Soup: Heart Healthy Red Bean Soup Collection

Hay Snazzy Gang.
I have 2 projects to share this week for you, The first of which was rescued from my local charity shop.
I came across this cool round tin and just knew I wanted to give it a makeover.


To start I cut 2 circles, 1 for the top and one the bottom from the red bell pepper sheet, Luckily the tin was just under the 6x6 size.
Next I diecut a couple of paper roses from the back of the bite size bits sheet, which was normal paper as opposed to the kraft card the rest of the papers were made from and therefore harder to mold into a rose shape. I inked round the edges with vintage photo distress ink, and added a couple of the heart pins from the kit and a couple of little love notes which I stamped using the clear stamp set {also from the kit} onto plain kraft card using the satin red versafine ink.


The bite size bits sheet is made up of 12  3x4 segments, I used one of these segments to stamp and cut out the word love as the focus to my box lid.


I stamped a few of the balloons from the clear stamp set in the red versafine ink onto the red sherry sheet, I found it gave a sort of resist effect which I liked. I cut them out and the used the tail stamp to finish off the balloons. I also cut a couple of the little birds from the scraps of the base paper to 3D a couple of them up.


And voila.. 1 complete made over tin. Simples but effective.
I will be back on thursday with my 2nd offering, A little hint.. it fits inside the tin!
Till then, Stay Inky
