I've been wanting to make a project for Eileen Hull's Art With Heart Challenge - Summer Fun with Sizzix. I have several of Eileen's Sizzix dies and I've been waiting to find time to make things with them.
So for my Summer Fun project I pulled out Eileen's Canister Die. And I decided to use it as a vase for some of the flowers from my garden (Day Lilies, Ladys Mantle, Lavender and Salvia)
I used an empty shrimp cocktail jar to put the flowers in- it slipped nicely into the canister!
I embossed all the pieces with Wendy Vecchi's Buttercup Embossing Powder - brushing some of it off before embossing to age it. I also rubbed it off the edge that I would be putting ScorTape on to put the pieces together.
After I heated the yellow - I sprinkled a little bit of Tiger Lily Embossing powder on and heated it again. When the pieces cooled - I stamped Wendy Vecchi's Spatter stamp using Adirondack Snow Cap.
I die cut some Tattered Florals out of Coredinations Ranger Distress paper - sanding the edges, sponging with Ranger Distress Vintage Photo and crushing up each bloom in my palm and then unfolding. I used an Idea-ology Curio Knob on the cover.
I wrapped a piece of wrinkled seam tape around the canister, tying it in a double bow.
And to finish it off I adhered an Idea-logy Flash Card with a Big Chat sticker on it and 3 rhinestones. I drew frames around the sticker and card with a black Stabilo pencil and rubbed it with my finger to soften.
I'm also linking my project to the Mixed Media Monthly Challenge - May Flowers
Happy weekend everyone!
