The Key - Altered Metal Jar Lid

For ages I've wanted to alter a jar lid - no idea why but with half term and kids with colds I decided in between feeding/ nursing / tissue handing I would have a play.
Background paper from stash cut to size, TH image stamped so I knew where to work around.
TH dots stencil and gesso brushed over, then once dry stencil offset and DecoArt Raw sienna acrylic paint  brushed over. TH grunge stamp inked in Barn Door DI and stamped to ground fairy.
Tiny key placed into fairy hand and the lid edge had a coat of texture paste which when dry was painted with DecArt Raw Sienna Acrylic paint.
TH fairy stamped and  embossed onto card stock copics colours for skin and fussy cut, later cut edges coloured with copics pen. Onto tissue paper I stamped the key using Dovecraft mini alphabet peg stamps, which were then placed and stuck with gel.

Whole thing glazed. Cropodile hole and eyelet added, 4mm beads onto clear thread to create a hanger lace applied to tin edge - all done!
