Wednesday Stamper - altered favourite object


The theme at Wednesday stamper is to alter your favourite object. I love altering, but up until now i have never put any of my altered things on my blog. Mainly because i am a hopeless photographer and up until now, was unable to get things from my camera onto my computer. However, tonight with my OH lovingly hanging over me I decided it was time to get over my technophobia. So here is my altered object, a tobacco tin formerly belonging to said OH.

The stamping happened mainly on the polymer clay surround, but also a little on the tin itself.

Oh this is beautifully elegant and oh so serene. I was anxious to see what this started as and shocked that it was a tobacco tin! Beautiful work.

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
