How You Getting On With Those Sardine Tins?

I’ve been altering sardine tins again, this time for a swap over at UKStampers. I loved the first one I did in April and this one was just as fun! I’ve called it ‘In The Frame’.

At the moment I’m just altering the inside of the sardine tin as I like the juxtaposition of a little unexpected world inside an everyday object.

The gent is from the Artistic Outpost Steampunk stamp set available from Quixotic Paperie.

If you are very sharp-eyed you might also spot the gears accessory stamp that comes with the Kraftin’ Kimmies Stamps Lavina stamp.

Now there wasn’t really a Steampunk theme running through my head when I made this, I was more focussed on the frame within the tin. But I have added a chain to the mica plate and rusted some of the Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Sprocket Gears for the counterpoint to the framed man. 

I used newspaper and Gesso on the inside of the tin and added colour with ZIG Art and Graphic Twin.

Have a fun Saturday.
