Before and After

Happy Wednesday (and yes it is 'cos it's my day off). It's time for a new Stampotique challenge and Janet has picked a good one :-)
Janet Klein is hostess this week for the SDC197 challenge.  I am challenging you to use some form of tin in your artwork.  Consider incorporating craft tin, tin tape, an Altoid container, a repurposed tin can or any tin object to incorporate with your stamping.

Put on your "tinking" caps and join us in this challenge to have a chance to win some Stampotique stamps.
There are loads of 'reality' shows on TV at the moment, but I must admit I don't watch them apart from 2 - Strickly, - oh wait a minute 3 - Strictly, The Voice, and The Biggest Loser. I love watching The Biggest Loser, while eating a bag of sweets and thinking 'I really must go to the gym lol' The best bit is the final week, and the big reveal of the before and after. So in homage to TBL we have Tinman before and after.
This is also an homage to Andy Skinner, 'cos it's made using his antiquing cream techniques and DecoArt paints and creams.

Here's rusty old Tinman



And here he is after his makeover. In his after shot Tinman has been stamped on sheet metal.
The lettering is Alphabet Lower. Who's a pretty boy now then lol.

Put together with last weeks tag and it's another page done for my tag book.

I hope you join in with our tinny challenge, and remember there is rubber to be won.


I'm also entering this into the Love To Create anything goes/mixed media challenge.
Enjoy your day, and thanks very much for looking x
