Our theme this week is "Look What I Did With My Tin" & look what I did with mine!I've had a great time with Francoise Read's gorgeous Clear Magic Garden Greetings set. There are just so many lovely sentiments to suit any occasion I just couldn't choose-so I used them all!! This is a card in a tin for that keen gardener or just to remind you of those lovely flowers of summer. There are some pretty flowers, butterflies & othre gardening icons to add embellishment to your design.  I've sponged the entire scrapbook with a soft lime chalk inkpad & then stamped the sentiment with a dark red chalk inkpad. I have stamped the various areas of artwork with a darker green inkpad and coloured them using Tombow & Sakura Stardust pens. I have used various punches to add embellishment to my pages. I have inked the lid of the tin with a mix of brown & red Stazon inkpads & have added a central scalloped card circlestamped with the little flower spray from the stamp set. I have finally added two paper flowers sponged witha dark pink ink. The outer edges of the tin have been embellished with punched daisies & lime green elements. Below you can see the various "pages" of the birthday scrapbook in a tin.
