Those look so good. I have to ask, though, how is it that the images are flipped on the tattoo tin? In meowari's pictures, the bird and star are on the opposite sides.  Huh
princessliak's picture is the accurate one. I have no idea how mine got flipped around Embarrassed. I'm not so good with the digital camera...
Princessliak- you are amazing! The tiki tin looks so neat, I can't wait until your other partner posts the pictures of the inside! What kind of glue did you use in order to get the paper to stick so well on the metal? And did you use an electric sander? I tried sanding the first one, but I tried doing it by hand. The only sandpaper I had wasn't fine enough I think, because it was just kind of scratching the paint... What kind of sander/ sandpaper did everyone use?

Ah, mystery solved. I would have thought if the image were flipped that the type would be backwards, but DUH, "mom" is a palindrome!  Cheesy

I didn't sandpaper at all. I used black gloss spray paint. Seems to work.

Two pair of really cute handmade earrings, I especially love the black roses, kiwi strawberry lip gloss mmm and some pink and black doohickies, i love the little plaid stars! Thanks so much Alyssa, you're awesome!
