Sheena's birdie stamps Day 3

Morning, feels like afternoon , had another early start today. Granddaughter is here today only Aunty Heather is looking after her.............
At least I could get started on the day to day jobs, then off to work, but need a quick visit to our local craft warehouse first.

This was a bit of an experiment, I had some tin boxes and wanted to decorate them.
First I painted it with white acrylic then sponged with the silks. The detail was added using the edge of the sponge. 
I stamped and embossed the kingfisher onto white card then painted with a mixture of Distress inks and silks. The kingfisher was cut out the glued down onto the tin. To prevent the paint being scratched off I sprayed a couple of coats of spray and shine on top.

It was great fun experimenting , I really love the texture sponging over paint gave. You can actually see the shimmer from the silks in this picture .
Happy Crafting


  1. Such a clever idea - I hadn't thought of trying tin as a base - I may well now though!! xx

  2. Hi Karen.
    Thank you such a clever idea. Have fun with Mia. I am having Sophie today so no crafting for me. Take care Kitty

  3. Hi Karen. What a great idea. I love how it turned out. I must find the tins that I have and give this a go. Take care.
