Altered project: Distressed tea canister

My favorite drink is 4C Green Tea and recently I began buying these tall canisters instead of the single packets. I liked the plastic canister so much I decided to take the labels off and try to customize it with alcohol inks and paper.

I added alcohol inks with the Tim Holtz distressing tool (red pepper, eggplant, moss) and once dry i streaked it with the felt pad itself. It felt a little like finger painting and it went on perfectly smooth.

A few scraps of patterned paper and sticker letters...

I added an epoxy sticker to the lid and VOILA!
Patterned Paper: Stampin Up DS Berry Bliss
Letters: American Crafts thickers, American Crafts LAX
Sticker: Marah Johnson epoxy
