When I think of "vintage", I think of old rusty metal objects. This month's theme inspired me to work with some rusty candy tins I've been saving. We all know how much I love old candy tins! One day during an artsy mama playdate, my friend Robin showed me how to stamp into molten solder (when it's still liquid). This technique proves once again just how durable red rubber stamps are! Stamps are such great tools, don't you think?

 I used bits and pieces from the August Nesting components Mixed Media kit to embellish the tins. I used the clip art sheets, pearl embellishments, rub ons, paper from the envelopes and the circles background stamp from the kit.

 I adhered everything to the tin and coated the entire tin in Ice Resin.

I stamped the sides and bottom of the tin with the Writings Background stamp and Staz On ink.

Here's the second tin.

 I can't believe how clear the stamped image comes out in the solder!

Here's a bonus piece I made since I had the resin out. A simple pendant. I stamped the birds on old book paper, adhered it to the bezel and filled with resin.

I hope you enjoyed my projects! I also hope that I have inspired you to think beyond the paper and create something unique with your rubber stamps!
