Liesbeth Tin

This is the third Tealight holder that I have made this week. This one was inspired by the chunky ATC by Liesbeth Fidder.
I started by following instructions of gluing vintage paper to my tin. I used manuscript. Next I gave it a wash over with Snowflake.
The tricky part was applying grungepaste through a stencil onto the curved surface. If I had thought, I could have used Lucy's technique of tissue paper but have only just remembered!
Next I stamped with Olive Archival, some fir trees around the base. It was beginning to look like a landscape, so I painted a wash of Ice Blue and Sky, to create a sky.
I rubbed Treasure Pewter over the Grungepaste snowflakes.
I didn't carry on with adding printed images like Liesbeth as there was no room!
I sealed over my tin with Metallic glaze and added a bead trim.

Thankyou for inspiring me Liesbeth and forgive me for going way off track!

Here are my trio of tins.


  1. Ooh, they're lovely - if I were another kind of person I might say "bling-tastic!" ... But I'm not, so I'll stick with fabulous!
