Yep, I'm posting pictures of my received shrine before I've even started working on mine!  ( Cheesy!  And also,  Shocked).

First of all, everything was wrapped up beautifully in red, white, and aqua, one of my favorite non-traditional color combos for Christmas:



I received an AMAZING Virgin Mary shrine.  So much detail packed into such a tiny space!



I especially love the beautiful painted flowers, the "crown" of matchstick heads at the top, and the unblinking eye at the bottom.  So cool!



I apologize for the poor photo quality -- there is absolutely no well-lit place to take photos inside my house, and the weather is supposed to be stormy outside for a couple of days.  rackycoo, please feel free to post any pre-send pics you have, so everyone can appreciate your masterpiece.  Thank you for giving me such an awesome introduction to tin altering!
