The Olde Curiousity Shoppe: Altered Sylle

Hello friends!  Have you seen the new Graphic 45, "Olde Curiousity Shoppe" line?  This line is so much fun to work with and the sky is the limit with these fun and wacky images..LOL!  Our boys drink the canned energy drinks and this was one of those cans.  I started by painting the can with a coat of White Gesso.  This prepares the can for whatever medium you want to use such as paint, embossing powder, ink, mists, stamps...whatever your heart desires.  I decided to use black mist and copper embossing powder on my can. It makes for an interesting and textured background.
Love all the detail in the paper
Embossing close up
I added a glass knob on the top of the can.  Hardware is Tim Holtz.
