Mermaid Treasure Box

This is another project I finished today. I took a tin...(similar to an old Altoid) and spray painted it midnight blue. I inked the lid with color box fluid chalk ink, stamped a head and torso from Outsidethemargins Art Parts stamp set and created an embossed tail to go with it. The jute is applied around the lid with red liner tape. the sea wead is sprayed with color mists and cut into narrow strips. I also added poney beads to the bottom for feet.

Jean, your mermaid box is delightful. It's a great place to put all those sea treasures found in Ohio :) Actually, it'll work for any treasures you "see."

Love the altered tin. Thanks for the inspiration.
