Wow, commenting on last fortnight's challenge at Stampin For The Weekend was no walk in the park. The amount of entries made my fingers numb. So, let's see how many entries this challenge gets. Cause it's Shabby chic/vintage.

I took this small tin can, painted it with concrete grey acrylic paint and pimped it up with some MS punching and flowers. The flowers are totally covered with stickles but it's hard to see in the picture :).
I'm gonna store some seeds in it, seeds from my summer flowers that I can hopefully this way revive next summer ;).

Other challenges:

Papertake weekly - just the one

Wild Orchid challenge - make it sparkle

Wonderful - I would have never thought about covering the tin with acrylic paints - and the lacy detail on punches is stunning!
