Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 48

Our challenge set by Sarah this week at Crafty Cardmakers is to alter a food carton, box or container and our sponsor Joanna Sheen is offering a £10 voucher for the lucky winner!


I chose a soup can for my altered food container project, after having the soup for my lunch :o), I washed and dried the can then painted the rims top & bottom with alcohol inks. I then cut a strip of K&Co DP to cover the can and stuck it on with double sided tape. I added a punched border at the bottom and then made 6 grunge paper roses with leaves using a Marianne Creatables die which I painted with Twinklin H2O's. After sticking the roses on I coloured the Meljens image with my Promarkers and die cut the cardstock and a piece of grungepaper, coloured to match the leaves, to mount the image on. I distressed the edges of both before sticking them together on the tin. A few random Wild Orchid flowers, some binding ribbon and other odds and ends together with some flowers from the garden finished it all off.
