DD Alters A Tin

Evening lovely crafters. Are you all shivering in this chilly weather? I think we've all got used to the warm sunshine haven't we.

Just a quick post tonight to share with you an altered tin DD was asked to create for another GDT spot she was delighted to receive from the ladies at Try It On Tuesday this week. I'm finding it hard to keep up with her these days.

She decided to use some of the flowers she made at the Easter Lovin Ink workshop and coloured a Tilda to match using promarkers. We punched the butterfly out of the scrap paper the flowers were placed on to be sprayed. It's lovely and sparkly and of course the colours match perfectly.

The little ticket sentiment is from a Whimsy set that are fast becoming a favourite.

The Design Team have created some gorgeous tins too so it's definitely worth popping over for a look.

Thanks for stopping by and for all the lovely comments you leave, they are so much appreciated.

You know what Lisa its always such a thrill to come over to your blog and see what you and/or Freya create, what a pair you are!! Please tell your DD what a gorgeous tin that is! Afraid I baulked at the idea of doing that challenge as I am not very good at altered items! Maybe Freya could do a tutorial! Jill x

The change is weather certainly did come as a shock didn't it Lisa.

And it amazed me when an Italian friend mailed me yesterday and said they had rain all Easter. We have been there several Easters and it's always glorious weather.

A lovely piece of artwork, if you don't mind me saying a bit different from your normal style, but just proves your versatility.

WOW, she's done so well! I wish I could colour as well!

We drove over to Marsden today and had a lovely walk up on the moors, it was sunny & warm up there but once we got home again I felt cold - weird!
