Vampire Burlesque Altered Fish Tin

This is what I love about swaps - you get some unusual requests that you wouldn't have thought to do yourself. This one was for an altered fish tin on the theme of Vampire Burlesque. What a great theme.  However, a real pain to work with as in my head my tin looked great but getting the physical reality to match that image proved extremely tricky. In fact they don't at all (I ended up doing two tins for the fun of the theme) and I think I have something better still in my head - it just needs a better person than me to make it!

Apologies for the photos - they were taken in a hurry with my daughter's camera which I couldn't figure out - techno dufus me! Hopefully you get the idea. I made them as hanging tins with dangly bits and made the fimo vampire lips myself for the one on the right and the illustration for the one on the left is from here as it was just too perfect.

I really did enjoy doing this but it has taken way longer than I expected so I have a few other bits to catch up with now.

Have a good one.
