Altered Lids - Lotstodo Challenge

After seeing what Sam created with a lid for the Lotstodo Challenge I decided to join in. These are the 2 I created for the swap.

This one I did first and called it Beauty - I just stamped the image on plain white paper, the background was made from card, run through the cuttlebug with the victorian folder. It was then inked with Vintage Phote distress ink, some lace was added as a border and then some pearls and a little rose for decoration.

This one is called Come fly with me and I put a lid inside a lid - the image was one I have on a cd, some music paper was added as the background, computer printed words, again some lace and pearls added and finished!

Just have to post them now and hope whoever receives them - likes them!


  1. love the beauty one hun especially like the pearls and lace effect around the edge. Can just see the embossed and inked image behind, I am sure who ever gets them will be very grateful.

    could you provide details of location, time and pennies by text too me when you get a minute

  2. These are great Polly, and I'll have a go when I get a jar empty. I'm not being lazy though as I have started my bird house today and have some ideas bouncing in my head.
