Snow Day!
WOW is it cold outside - Today we had a winter storm here in Texas, the sleet and snow are coming down and my work is closed for the day so I decided to do what? well spend my time stamping and getting some christmas/birthday presents finished of course!!! This is my very first lunch tin and I think I really like the way it turned out. I covered the tin with some really pretty rose paper that i found at Hobby Lobby - I used ModPodge to adhere it to the tin - it did bubble up a bit, but I took another piece of paper and laid it on top and ran my hand across it until all the bubbles were gone - then I added a layer of ModPodge. I took a chipboard letter N (my boss's initial) and painted it with craft paint (white paint that I added a couple of drops of regal rose ink refill to). I used the Roses in Winter set and stamped each rose individually, cut them out and sprayed them with water. Then i curled up the ends with a small paintbrush and let them dry. once they were dry I sponged on some chocolate chip ink - then I put the flowers together. I attached them with LARGE dimensionals and covered them with ModPodge. This was a lot of fun to make - now I have to get busy on the dividers that go inside!

Kendra,

Your lunch tin turned out BEAUTIFUL!!! What a great job for your first one. I love the technique you used for the rose. Your boss is going to love it and if it was me, I would have a really hard time parting with it (doesn't that sound horrible?). We had our first snow fall this morning and boy, it is chilly here in Chicago too. Schools are closed, but unfortunately I had to work :(. I'd rather be at home stamping like you.
