First I painted my tin with white gesso.
 Then I printed my Vintage Pictures Inverted
so when I Mod Podge my picture face down it would be a mirror image.
 

 


Next I Took a foam applicator and applied them to my milk tin
 
Then I placed my image face down onto my tin.
I did not mod podge after application as I did not
want a resist from the mod podge when I colored the tin.
 
When completely dry I soaked down the paper
with water and rubbed off the paper, creating a
transferred image with only ink remaining on my tin.
 
 
And as you can see my inverted picture is now facing the right way.
As I keep rubbing off the wet paper my image becomes clear.
 
 

I did the same method to my second image.
 
I mixed up some shimmer mixers from
Terri Sproul with water and binder powder.

Then I painted and drizzled down my tin and added some
gold paint rubbed in with my fingers until I was happy.

Then I took a rag and cleaned off my image
and cleaned the can a bit by rubbing it with a cloth.
 
 
Next I started to place my lace and embellishments.
 I used 3D Crystal Lacquer as well as hot glue. 
 
 
 
Here I made a flower embellishment with a piece of
 lace gathered and I used 3D Crystal Lacquer to adhere it with a pearl center.
 
 
 And the final photo..
