I solemnly swear that I will not make a card during this challenge. Edna won't let me. But I can make anything else I want. Welcome to challenge #60: N is for Not a Card!
I've been wanting to make a travel watercolor kit out of an Altoids tin that I saw on Pinterest and this challenge gave me the perfect opportunity. Here are some pictures of my kit.
That blue thing on the paper is supposed to be a cat.
I started this project by making a Gelli print. Don't even ask me the last time that I used my Gelli plate. Once the paper was dry, I used my Silhouette to cut out the Altoids tin pattern. You just need to look up "mint tin" in the Silhouette search bar if you are interested.
The papers were stamped and edged with black ink. On this top layer I affixed the vintage lady and my bit of snark. I used matte medium to glue the papers to the tin.
I stamped some images onto shrink film to add little arty charms to the bookbinding thread.
The watercolor palette is from gum packaging. I squirted the primary colors into the gum container and left one empty for a place for water. This shorty brush fits perfectly into the tin. The book, brush, and paint all fit into the closed tin. Now I have watercolors wherever I go!
Enough of my photos! If you want to not make a card and play along, you have until 11:55 p.m. EST on June 10th to enter your creation! Please stop by the home Snarky Sisters Blog to see what inspiration pieces my Snarky Sisters have made for you!
