more fun projects




I know you have seen these before, but this one really is a little different. I picked up the Scrap & Stamp Art magazine at WalMart yesterday. There was this great article and project by Elizabeth Allan - Altered Candy Tin with Gift Enclosures. I usually make accordian albums in the tins, so when I saw she made small cards I had to get the magazine and try out the project. Of course, I don't have the right flowers to use so mine came from a stamp set called Springtime. I think hers is much nicer than what I came up with - oh well, I had fun trying and learned a new technique.
I can't tell - does it take Blogger longer to upload multiple images or one at a time? Don't mind me, just my impatience rearing its ugly head!
I stamped the center of the card stock with an image from Intrinsic Background then stamped my flowers and colored them in with CTMH markers and the blending pen and a few Copic markers. I really need more Copic markers. The blending pen chews up the card stock.

Now who can I give this to?
Thanks for tuning in.
