My Other Creations: Wish Catcher Altered Tin

It's another Monday and that means another fabulous challenge theme over at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog.  This week's theme is, "Make a Wish."  I got to thinking about how wishes are made such as on shooting stars or with pennies thrown into a fountain.  But with all of that wishing going on all over the world,  I started hoping that nobody's wishes fell through the cracks.  That gave me the idea to make a Wish Catcher who would scoop up any stray wishes that might've gotten lost.  And why not make her retro-trendy-classy, too?  Here she is:
The Wish Catcher girl is from Tim Holtz's Found Relatives-Occasions card sets and I covered her dress with Washi tape.  I made her wish-catching net out of wire, tulle, and tinsel twine.  The tin is a mini bread loaf pan that I found at a thrift store.  I sanded it, then painted the outside pink and the inside teal using Gesso, Distress Paint and Dina Wakley acrylic paint.  The city scene is made from a fabulous stamp set called Urban Scribble, which I colored with Distress Ink and layered.  The side panel features a great typewriter image from Kaisercraft's My Year, My Story stamp set and I also added some Tim Holtz Symphony Washi tape.  I made wheels for the city scene out of spools, Bingo game pieces and Reverse Confetti's Swirly dies.  The "wish" words are from Paper Smooches' Chart Toppers stamp set.

These are the supplies I used which you can find at Simon Says Stamp:
