Stampotique Challenge 197 - Tin is In

Welcome back to the blog everyone and thanks for stopping by.
Today is Wednesday which means it's time for another challenge over at: Stampotique Designers Challenge Blog
and our wonderful hostess this week is Janet Klein and her challenge to use is "Tin Is In"
This is what Janet says about this challenge:

"Tin can be an exciting and unexpected element in your stamping projects. So put on you tinking caps" and reach for some craft tin-an Altoid container or upcycle with a can or other tin object."

I began by finding a tin, I decided to use this tin that I got from Cracker Barrel years ago, I always save my tins

I started by covering the tin in gesso in order to prep it for paint

I used acrylic paint in a salmon type color for my tin

Next I stamped some of Stampotique's stamps all over a piece of tissue paper, I used a few different archival ink colors for this

Once everything was dry I applied the tissue to my tin with glue

In order for my piece to stand up I created a base using cardboard. I painted it first with the same salmon color

I then applied another darker color of paint

I then stamped onto the base

I used Carrot and colored her with Copic Markers,
she is going to pull my cart with the 3 In A Round boys

I added buttons for wheels and a pulley string
Here is my final piece

For this project I used Stampotique stamps:

3 In A Round ,Carrot - By Daniel Torrente
Design Cube 2 - By France Papillon
Love Definition - By Amy Wilson Wellenstein
French Text - By Jo Capper-Sandon
