Altered tin

So here is my altered tin. The tutorial from Live with Prima used Prima tins but I had this Maya Road tin that I thought I would use. I had to prime it with an acrylic primer first then I painted it with  Walnut distress crackle paint, inked walnut distress ink around the edges. I then brushed a little Rock Candy Distress stickles on the outer corners of the tin. Then I dropped SU re-inker drops in tempting turquoise and really rust and brushed them in to make it look as if old paint color was seeping through. Next I stamped a swirly floral stamp( Fancy Pants) with Stazon Black ink. Last but not least I embellished it with bling from Dollarama, Prima Flowers and leaves ( oh, to get the feathery orange leaf I peeled off the top layer of one of the other leaves), and Kaiser Craft flowers, tied some ribbon and lace to the handle and there you have it.
