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.
