Steampunk altered tin

So, like many of you I'm a bit of a hoarder for things that I might be able to incorporate into some crafting at a later date; it's taking up a lot of room!  This tin of cough sweets is actually one of the smaller items but it's a start ;)
 The background is embossed card (Tim Holtz Gears embossing folder) coloured with frayed burlap Distress Ink and tarnished brass and antiqued bronze Distress Stains, and a bit of black Archival to dirty it up a bit :)  I put washi tape around the rim of the tin (not sure what make!) and added an Ideology gear with a little brass coloured charm.
The gentlemen are from the Stampers Anonymous steampunk set, with a Papermania Chronology cog stamp edging the bottom of the tin.  The images are stamped in coffee Archival so the ink didn't run when I coated the top of the tin with Mod Podge to seal it.
Thanks for visiting today!  I'd love to hear what kinds of things you collect for crafty 'recycling' :)

I also wanted to mention that there are just two days left on our charity auction to raise money for Save The Children - we've got items signed by the actor Kevin McKidd to bid on, so please share and retweet and get the word out there, auction ends Monday!

Happy scrapping!
