The tin is 2"x1.5' and I started by dabbing alcohol inks onto it. I diecut a TH frameworks hexagon set and cut it to fit the tin.
Next, I Treasure Brassed the surface of the hexagons and glued it to the tin. I squirted glossy accents into the spaces and carefully added an assortment of beads using different colours for each hexagon.
I painted the inside of the tin with PA frescos London Bus and Blood Orange and cut and folded black card to fit inside.
I chose a selection of PA mini stamps for the inside and heat embossed images in an assortment of metals and a red.
I added some stickles to the images and doodled around with a white pen. On the back of the concertina is a sentimental rambling that I have written to our daughter in white pen but not shown.
The lid resembles something that I did on a heart shaped box for the topic of shiny stuff. Just hope that she likes it!
Thanks for looking!
