Follow your heart tin




Hi everyone, I am blog hopping today with some amazing designers.  I've created a fun little altered tin.

 
I began by stamping ColorBox Background Basics by Ann Butler - Basket 1 with ColorBox Crafter's Ink by Ann Butler in Blueberry.  Crafter's Ink works on many surfaces, and I chose to heat set it to seal the color.


I used EasyCast Clear Casting Epoxy to create the heart I used in this project.  Following the instructions, I mixed the resin and hardener for 2 minutes in a mixing container.  Then I poured the mix into a new container and mixed again for another minute before pouring into the EasyCast Jewelry molds.  Be sure you have sprayed the molds with the Mold Release and Conditioner.  This makes it so much easier to release the formed resin pieces.


Allow the pieces to set for about 24 hours.  If you have sprayed the molds with the Mold Release and Conditioner, it makes it so much easier to release the formed resin pieces.  Once they are ready they will easily pop out of the mold.  I added color with Canyon Crafter's Ink.  See how nicely the color adheres to the resin heart.

 
I used Ultra Seal Multi Purpose Sealer to adhere the pattern paper to both sides of the tin. 


Once the papers dried, I stamped a sentiment on the left side.  Then I poured a thin layer of resin on top.   I then waited about 10 minutes before adding my embellishments.  They easily adhered in place.  Next I used a toothpick to add resin to the letters creating a domed appearance.


Velvet ribbon was also inked with Blueberry Ink then adhered around the edge of the tin.
