Paperartsy Inspiration - Sewing Tin

Hi all, just popped on to enter the inspiration challenge over at Paperartsy and the designer this week is the amazing Helen Chilton.  As you may have guessed by now I am addicted to Fresco paints, they do everything lol, but this week Helen shows us that it works brilliantly on metal as well, I'm not surprised lol, anyway she painted on a tin.  She is using the sewing themed stamps that they bought out last year, now I bought them last June when I attended a full weekend at Artsycrafts but have not yet used them, shock horror I know, so this time I got them out and altered a tin to make a sewing kit for when we go camping :-)

All ready for camping :-)

I painted fabric with fresco paint to stamp on then backed it with denim

Close up ....... Yep I managed to get the reel border and the bottom reel upside down
OOps lol

Right I shall be off, hopefully will be back tomorrow with something I'm working on :-)
Happy Crafting :-)

Brilliant result, Kezzy, and if you hadn't mentioned it I probably would never have noticed the upside down stamping :) Elizabeth xx

Lovely project! The stamps are so perfect for a sewing box and I love the way you highlighted the stamping with white.
