This was really fun, although hard to photograph! First I prepped it with gesso. Then I painted the whole thing with white acrylic paint, then sponged parts of it with pink acrylic paint. Then I stamped with the butterfly from Love Without End in white craft ink, and I embossed it. Then I colored it in with sharpies. Added the "enjoy" zipper pull, then I applied "sure tac" glue (it's white, but dries clear), then put on clear glass microbeads. I can't wait to do my next tin!

Very cute! I bought some velamints for the tins, and then noticed that the lettering and part of the image was raised, so the top wasn't smooth. Did you have the same thing? What did you do to "fix" it?
