Beautiful Love Tin

I really enjoyed making the girlie grunge "Treasure box of Happiness"  last week, so I decided  that I would try to make more 3D items. I noticed that at  Try in On Tuesday, they had a challenge to "Alter a Tin". It is sponsored by the Craft Barn, think they would ship to US?  It is also is such a pretty pink color, that I'll enter it in Pink Saturday too.  Also tomorrow I will be posting about my giveaway, so please check back for the exciting details. Adding this to Pinkalicious Thursday.

Well, I started with a round mint tin that was pink already, so all I had to do was use a silver paint pen to sorta cover it. The fun part was the female beauty from Fripperies and Butterflies, where I used Twinkling H2O paints and glitter to detail her. This is the second time I used these luminous paints and just adore them. Made a headdress of rhinestones and pearls,  glued on silver german scrap trim from Artchix Studio, word snippets "Beautiful love", more glitter and a bell necklace with a white bow. Around the tin was pink german scrap and I added pink sheer ribbon and beautiful wings encrusted with rhinestones, pearls and glitter to the back. I took a photo of it standing up on our mantel, but it's just as nice flat too.
Hope you'll spread some beautiful love this week.
Take care, gerri

  5. Isn't she love -- ly. There is a song like that, right? Now, tell me about the wings, Gerri. Where do you get wings ... and your silver paint looks very opaque which is good. Had a nice shine. A gorgeous piece. Donna
