A Quick Tin

As I love the M & S mints I have a stack of these little tins. I usually chuck them on the fire to strip all the paint off them, but this one I just gave a quick swoosh of gesso a bit of distress ink and then stamped on it with stazon. I then over spritzed it with moon shadow mist and a bit of embossing on the edges. I cannot decide if the candy dots are a mistake or not but its too late now as they are stuck on.
