A dressed up tin

Hello peeps, this is Juhi with another guest DT post. White on white is my favorite for CAS cards, but I had never tried it on a 3-D project, until now. I dressed up an old tin for the Itsy Bitsy Pristine Sparkle Challenge. I must admit, I had no end "look" in mind when I started this but I do love the end result.
This is what I started out with.
I began by applying a layer of decoupage glue (any other craft glue will work as well) over the tin and covering it with crushed wrapping tissue. I've used tissue paper that come's with shoes. Let it dry.
This is what my tin looked like with one layer of crushed tissue, I've also added a lace trim at the bottom using decoupage glue, hot glue would work as well.
I didn't think the tin looked white enough with the tissue so I went ahead and stuck on some paper doilies, I stuck one onto the lid too. These have also been stuck with decoupage glue/fevicol, apply a layer of glue on top of the doilies too.

After the glue dried up I stuck an itsy bitsy stencil with masking tape and colored in the central row of flowers with a versamark marker and heat embossed with silver embossing powder.

To finish it off I added loads of laces and trims in silver and white. I also added a chipboard laser cut (painted silver with acrylic paint) and some glitter foam stars.
For the lid I used a chipboard swirl again painted silver with acrylic paint and added some white paper flowers. The flowers are from a set of layered flowers I got from Itsy Bitsy long back, only one remained so I carefully separated the layers to make three flowers.
Here's a list of supplies I've used that are from the Itsy Bitsy Store:
I hope this has tickled your imagination enough to come up with something for the Itsy Bitsy Pristine Sparkle Challenge. I know it sounds intimidating but do give it a shot, you'd be surprised with the magic white and silver can spin!
