Lots to do - Altered tub and Stampman bloghop

Another week and some great treats in monochrome last week thank you for playing along, hope you will be back this week to share altered items with us at Lots to do.

This tub started out at Body Shop with some yummy Mango shower scrub, you can still catch the faint scent of it in the tub. Once the scrub was all used up the tub went through the dish washer and has been waiting for its moment.    Do that a lot have several tubs and other emptied containers waiting to be recycled.    For this weeks challenge it has been coated with Alcohol inks and then some gallery glass embellishment. Just right for storing diecuts.

As it happens The Stampman's latest challenge started yesterday it is also for an Altered item. Guess this works for their challenge as well.   The Stampman also have a blog hop during the fortnight of this challenge and there are prizes, might be worth checking it out.

  5. Wow, love what you have done with this, arent crafters just brilliant at recycling? It looks completely different and I quite like the idea that it still has a faint smell of Mango , The colours are so rich and the alcohol inks have done a brilliant job as always. Thanks for sharing what you have done.
