Hi everyone, it's Etsuko My favorite things with you today, and I'd like share with you 'Tin Can Name Card Holder' using fabulous Seth's new Mini stamps and collection set stamps.

I came up with I had a tin can of gas-cooked vintage-style Altoids. It was just the size put a name card, so I planned to use it for this project, and it was also a good idea for Seth's new product mini-stamps.

I made collages randomly on A4 Smoothy White card using various characters and papers. Then I painted it with a hardened brush using Ranger's Distress Ink mustard seed, aged mahogany and faded jeans.

This is the top half of the can lid, I added ESA12 gear and EM39 eye with Backed Texture Rocky Road and some doodle on the master board. Also I used Vintage Beeswax in places.

I tried to use it for the lid can at first, but I used Beeswax as a whole, so it became dark and messy and I gave up it.

And made it again the piece to be used on the back side of the lid with the same design. EM43 was centered with embossing powder. It is difficult to see in the photo but I used Beeswax in places for finishing.

I created the master board for the name card, brushed and stamped with five colours Fresco Paints, Double Denim, Venice Blue, Glacier Ice, Buff and Caribbean Sea using the multi ink jet sheet.

Then I shadow stamped the ESA11 and ESA12 with Archival Ink Cornflower Blue.

I removed each card from the sheet and collage using the extra master board on it. Also I painted with Snowflake on these collage papers. After that, I pressed excess white paint with another paper and removed it.

These ten cards were finished with embossing, stitching and doodling. The top card was embossed with Dirty Sand Backed Texture using EM48 on EM33 background.
Below that was embossed with Rocky Road using EM45.

The top card was embossed with Rocky Road and Chunky Rust using EM45 and ESA08
Below That was embossed with Ancient Amber using EM39 and stamped EM41 by Jet Black Archival.

The top card was embossed with Patina Oxide using EM40. Below that was embossed with Rocky Road using EM43.

The top card was embossed with Rocky Road and Chunky Rust using Em42.
Below that was embossed with Dirty Sand using EM48, also stamped ESA08 by Jet Black Archival.

The top card was embossed with Rocky Road using EM37.
Below that was embossed with Rocky Road using EM40 also stamped ESA08 by Sepia Archival.

I affixed a piece of printed information paper on the back of each card.

These were a lot of choices in this topic EYES and I was very confused, but I still came up with my favorite project. It's still difficult to use Backed Texture for overlapping or most of the part, and it's still a lot to learn. But this is fun and difficult, and I'm looking forward to solving it. I think that some of you have received a wonderful Seth's class, so please be sure to show off this new mini stamps and technology. I look forward to seeing it and I hope you enjoy my work today.
Thank you so much for visiting.

Oh Etsuko this project is magnificent!!! I love both of your backgrounds - they transform the tin and provide the perfect backdrop for the cards inside. And then the embossing of the images really gives them a much needed pop to help them stand out and have such an impact. Adding the eye to the centre of the cog is so imaginative! Love it all!
