CCC Challenge 19 - Altered Tin

This challenge was set by Sarah in New Zealand, a member
of the Charmed Cards and Crafts Forum.......

'Okay so the challenge is to decorate a paint tin or a milk tin...
you know those old school milk tins??? any shaped tin as
long as it isnt a small one, anyways you can do what ever you
like with it, it has to have some form of ribbon or fibre on it and
that is it - the rest is up to you. You can do it on what ever you
like...I look forward to seeing what everyone comes up with.'

My first attempt at altering....this tin originally contained Prima flowers and is going to hold small pieces of ribbon in it's new incarnation.

I used Adirondack shell pink paint, Papermania stickers, buttons, lots of ribbon and glitter strips on the lid - all in one of my favourite colour combinations.

I am pleased with the result and think I may have to look for other things to alter!
