Thursday night crop...

...and a little bit of altered crafting.

The thursday night crop that I attend once a fortnight is organised in 4-week blocks. At the last evening we received our 'kit' of materials for the 4-weeks (although there will likely be a few additions still to come) and one of the items was a Maya Road tin containing metal rounds (ribbon sliders).

Someone made a comment about the pretty little tin so I thought I would have a play.
This is what I came up with - the tin has been coloured using Adirondack inks in Watermelon/Mountain Rose/Meadow. The tree is a flat-back button embellishment that was also part of the kit.
The tin is slightly more than 1&3/4 inches square so I cut a strip of white CS slightly less than 1&3/4 inches wide from a sheet of 12x12 and folded it concertina style.
I used some ink to add a bit of colour to the CS and then applied some PP panels. A piece of satin ribbon and a gem brad act as a 'pull'.
Just to show how teenie this is I took a pic with it sitting on my hand.

This is a work in progress and I need to decide what other decoration I'll be adding, although it won't be anything too bulky because the tin is quite shallow.

So not much scrapping got done last night but I had fun playing with the inks.............................
