Phew, happy Friday, everyone! This week needs to be OVER! I am looking forward to some warmer temps this weekend! Since my sister already received her little St Pat’s gift, I can share it with you now:
This is another little altered Altoids tin, decorated with some vintage St Pat’s images I gathered from around blogland! I have to admit that the inside of this one is not as well-done as I would have liked. I need to color the edge of my cut images so they don’t show white; I really dislike that and I didn’t realize how bad it looked until I saw the photos. Better next time! Anyway, here is the inside:
I used some generic DP I had in my stash for the backgrounds, along with some green clover metallic decorations I had hanging around. Since I had a dearth of St Patrick’s Day sentiments, I was wondering what to do….then I remembered I had a nice set on My Digital Studio, so I printed a few out and added them to the inside! I had so much fun with them, I did a miniature collage and printed that out for the back of the tin:
I added some gold hearts and green rhinestones, just for fun, as well as overstamped it with the Linen background stamp (ret), just to give it some texture. Then, I added a few more sentiments and enlarged it, printing it out on a standard piece of cardstock, and made a little collage poster to hang on my wall (well, it’s not hung, it’s actually tacked up with a couple of cheapie thumb tacks I had hanging around!!!):
DH actually commented on this….and he never notices ANYTHING like this! I haven’t used MDS for a while, so it was fun to play around! Thanks for visiting today!
