True Friend tin

 So I made this for the Design team call over at CDS as well.  It is really funny, I made this last night at about 10 o'clock.  I get the monthly e-mail letter from Splitcoaststampers and on the bottom of the news letter is a older list of projects/tutorials.  And there is the pop-can idea.  I just laughed at myself.  I have saved these cans a couple of years ago, I have made projects off and on with them.

What I was trying to do with this was make it look like a wharf leg with the rope around it.  The Design call is for adding something that dangles to your card or project.  Will I took some wire and bent them to look like fishing hooks, stamped the shells, watercolored them and hung them from the hooks from the rim of the tin.  Are you wondering if that is a real sand dollar.  Yes it is, I found this on a beach either on Cape Breton Island in the Maritimes or in Mexico a couple of years ago.

Stamps: Shore Treasures - CDS

Enjoy & TFL
