Mark center of tin. Fill tin with old telephone books to give a rigid area for drilling. Drill a 5/16" hole in center of tin. Remove books before proceeding. Sand tin. Remove any burs from the drilled hole with wire tool. Apply three coats of unbleached titanium gesso on the tin. Allow drying time between coats.

Stamp "Heart Flowers" with timber brown across the bottom of tin and "Butterfly Trio" twice on the top of tin. Allow to dry before proceeding.

Activate H20's with a fine mist of water, use watercolor brush to color "Buterfly Trio" and "Heart Flowers". When dry, add glitter glues to butterflies and heart flower tops.

Stamp an extra butterfly with rich cocoa on white cardstock, color with H20's, let dry. Add glitter glue to butterfly, dry, cut out and adhere to tin. Add antennas to the butterfly with black pigment pen.

Stamp and watercolor "Daisy" on white cardstock. Cut-out and adhere flower to handle. Apply glitter glue to daisy.

Stamp "Kyra" and Bryony" with rich cocoa ink. Let dry completely. Watercolor both images, cut away all white areas with sharp scissors, and then adhere to the tin.

Add glitter glue to wings of both fairies.

Add glitter glue to hearts on the "Kyra" fairy.
Stamp one of the "Mushroom" on white cardstock. Paint with H20's. Cut out and then adhere next to "Bryony" fairy. Appply glitter glue on mushroom.
