Alter it Monthly challenge with Music as the theme is my altered bean (tomato) tin. As this also has a flower on it, I get to play with Hels Sunday Stampers this week too :)
I started off intending for the main grungepaper jacket for the tin to look a bit different than this, prepped an inky, grungy background, stamped over it then I intended to fade it out a bit with a coat of watered down gesso. Alas, I did not dry the stamping first!! So I ended up with everything merged in to one faded blue background, lol. I stamped the swirl from Paperartsy Hot Picks 1005 in coffee archival ink, a butterfly from a CI plate in Adirondack Denim ink along the top, then laced that onto the tin with some blue ribbon (the tin had a coat of Hazelnut paint dabber at the top and bottom). I stamped the Stampotique musical tag stamp in denim onto some grungepaper inked with Broken China DI, then cut it out and stuck it onto the tin with some foam pads.
It didn't end up quite where I thought it was going to, but then, things rarely do! That's half the fun :)
I've got a week off work this week, YAY!! So I can get inky and messy and play!
Hope everyone is having a good weekend.
