Altered Tin With Surprise Giftie Inside

Hi guys!  I have a fun little altered tin for you today.  I think this just makes the cutest gift and I already have a friend in mind to give this to.  She LOVES Halloween about as much as I do, so I know this will be a hit. 


I began using a tin from Altered Pages that you can find here.   I added vintage text paper, a fun pumpkin collage and some ribbon and twin to cover the tin.  I really love the Gothic Lace Stickers that you can see here at the top and bottom of the tin.  They are a wonderful textural element and so easy to use.
 
Next, I added vintage black cat images to bottle caps using Crystal Lacquer.  You can find all sorts of wonderful Halloween images here.  The Crystal Lacquer was used under the image to adhere it to the bottle cap and again on top to create a resin type look over the top of the image.  Crystal Lacquer is self leveling so that makes it great for this application and it doesn't take over night to dry...Bonus!

    
And, I added a little charm bobble at the bottom for some extra fun and glimmer.
These skull charms would be awesome too!
 
I added a bit more Crystal Lacquer to the pumpkins eyes to give them a little extra umph.  I didn't really want to use the word pop seeing as these are eyeballs that we are talking about. Ew!  ;-)
 

I then added a little gothic label to the back so I could sign and date my creation.  When able, always sign and date your art or craft project...you never know what journey your works will take and whose hands they will end up in some day. 

Here are a few more shots... Can I Just say...look at that beautiful background paper.  That is from the lovely line of Sabor Papers that you can find here.
