And Now For Something Completely Different...

I love finding the unexpected in the everyday so my new found love of altering sardine tins is just a perfect outlet for me! Here is my latest tin and I've called it 'In The Frame'.

The gent is from the Artistic Outpost Steampunk stamp set available from Quixotic Paperie.

If you are very sharp-eyed you might also spot the gears accessory stamp that comes with the Kraftin' Kimmies Stamps Lavina stamp.

Now there wasn't really a Steampunk theme running through my head when I made this, I was more focussed on the frame within the tin. But I have added a chain to the mica plate and rusted some of the Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Sprocket Gears for the counterpoint to the framed man so you can call it steampunk or vintage if you like! 

Have a fun Saturday and a great week.
