Recycled Tuna Can Lid - CCK FB (DT)


I used a digital stamp from Ching-Chou Kuik called The Koi from the Circle Oriental Kimono Lady set. The image is colored with markers and ink. The design is embellished with watercolor crayons, glossy accents and sea shells.

After cleaning and drying the tuna lid, I spray painted it with flat white paint. This gives you a surface that is easy to work with. I then layered my circle diecuts inside the tin and used a paint dabber to distress the project. I am going to use this as a magnet but you could attach a hanger and use it as an ornament.

The Ching-Chou Kuik FB challenge for August is "recycle something". I hope you will join the fun!
