Dressed up Drink!!

Good morning to you

Today I would like to show you a little recycling and a little playing all in one, I am loving my current play time, so many ideas, that I have been waiting to try.

I decided to have a play with my copic airbrush system again, to create this altered tin.

I sprayed with primer the little tin, and then airbrushed it with a variety of yellow copics, darker at the bottom and then lighter towards the top.  Over this I placed my favourite lace (that has been coloured up so many times before with my spraying) I over sprayed this with YG94 and then removed the lace.  I then used one of my brown ink pads and an old sentiment stamp and I rolled the tube over the sentiment carefully back and front, all of this before I then adorned it with some gorgeous embellishments see below as they are all Hobby House products except the ribbon which is from Lidl.

Hobby House products used are:
(Lace from shop only)

Here are some different views

Here is what I started with - I used a Nellie Snellen circle die to create the top and bottom
If you want to see more of the Hobby House products or be inspired by others hop and see us on 
A warm welcome to my new followers, and I would like to thank all of my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave me such inspirational and kind comments, and this then allows me to hop on over and visit you in return.
