I just finished my first swap - and altoid tin swap and I'm so darn proud of this tin that it needed to be shown off! But I also have a couple other projects laying around that I finally finished to add on as well. Thanks for looking Smiley
The Tin!

in the edge of the photo you can see the bottom half of the tin which was also covered in fake wood polymer clay. I thought about texturing the branch on the outside, but somehow that just didn't happen. I love the owl though Smiley

I made a couple of these little owl statues to go into the tin. I think I'm slightly addicted to making cute little animals now...

Another one of the owls and a goldfish

Kiss me, I'm a fish. Mwwwwah

Sorry for the fuzzy picture. This was my first experiment with image transfer and polymer clay. I drew the little trees with colored pencil and used liquid sculpey to transfer them to the ring. The one under it was a pine tree scene but for some reason I don't have pictures of it. Blast.
Thank you again for looking. As always, comments and helpful critiques are welcome.
