Altered and exciting news !

So first things first......I've been asked to join the I ♥ ProMarkers Design Team ! Woohoo ! Really pleased ( can you guess!)

So now onto my altered project which I'm putting in for the Tuesday Taggers challenge of Altered ? You bet ! I've had this pot for ages and kept thinking I should do something with it.

So I started by covering the pot with Lettuce alcohol ink then went over it with Stream and then finished with Pesto.
I dabbed some gold alcohol ink onto the lid and then glued the beads on the lid with Glossy Accents.

I really wanted some Grunge Paper for the flowers but I've had a real job trying to find some in stock ! So these flowers were punched from card, using an EK Success punch then I've sponged Distress ink over them and then covered them with Glossy Accents. While the GA was still wet I added some Stickles.
I have to say it turned out better than I thought it would. I've tracked down some Grunge Paper so when it arrives will be experimenting with it. Well it's been real April Showers today, so far I've managed to dodge them..long may it !
Thanks for looking


  1. Many CONGRATS Sue on your new DT post! What fab news Im so pleased for you and in my opinion, it was well overdue!

    Super altered piece, I am amazed that a plastic pot could take the inks. I love the look of movement of the ink too, it looks so great!
    Thanks for all of your inspiration!

    Hope you have a great weekend!
