UKS December Week 2 Challenge

In between rushing around making my Christmas cards I managed to do the weekly challenge on UK Scrappers. I used one of the sketches provided, coil colours and new stash.  The papers are Teresa Collins Now and Then from my latest Quirky Kit.  I love them and might need to invest in more of them after Christmas. Photos are of DD Fiona ages six out sledging with her brother.  Shes 19 now so as you can see Im still playing catch up with the Mountains of photos lol

Altered Sardine Tin Swap

After seeing a lovely altered sardine  tin on pinterest I decided to host my very first swap over on UK Scrappers!

Much fun was had by us all.making tins to our swapees theme.  Mine is now winging its way to Lou so I really hope she likes it.  Her theme was Frost so after cleaning out my tin i covered it with snow made from a mixture of gesso, White utee crystals and glossy accents as featured in Sctap 365.  The background bad some dylusions ink sprayed and stopped on it with.chipnoard stars and stickles.  The snowman Was covered in platinum utee and then a script stamp was stamped in to it.  I finished it off with a banner with Brrrr on it and a few more snowflakes covered in utee.

I had a lot of fun doing this one and might host another one in the New Year.
