Altered Paint Can

I have to say I had the most amazing time creating this. I have had these clear paint cans around for ever and honestly I prefer working with metal cans from home improvement stores but couldn't let this go to waste! It is pretty hard to tell in the picture because it was so bright and I could not get the lighting right but the black part of the paper is raised flock. It is from the me & my Big ideas black and white butterfly specialty stack which you can see here. I love this stack and this is the first time I have used it. I look at it all the time but it is so nice I didn't want to cut it up! lol Isn't that silly? On the top of I used the script cuttlebug embossing folder and then inked it with Frost White Colorbox ink. The stick pins are some of the first ones I made and since I only had white pins I colored the tops with a red copic. The black and white flower I made from the same paper that I used on the can. I love these flowers and have been putting them on everything! I thought this pendent that I have also had around for a while went perfect on this can! I attached it under the black ribbon with an eyelet so it would sit right on the can.
