Sweet Sarah Kay......
I hope you are all well and enjoying this most beautiful summer!
Today I would like to show you a Pail that I made when I taught a class at Crafts U Love. I had the most gorgeous ladies on my class and I thank you all for giving me such a lovely, lovely day!
I used this adorable Sarah Kay image from Stampavie. She was stamped with versafine black onyx onto Waterford water colour paper 300gsm. I used distress ink pads to colour with. The circles are nesties and I have distressed the background with tattered rose.
I masked off a little of the image for the top of the tin. The stickles are star dust. I also added dots of liquid pearls around the scalloped circle.
I have edged everything with vintage photo. The butterflies are a Martha Stewart punch.
For the borders I have used Martha Stewart border punches and the little tiny butterflies that were punched out when I punched the paper I stuck these around the Pail on the ribbon.
I made a little tag to go with the Pail and the greeting and swirls are Magnolia. I added milled lavender crackle paint to the heart and sprayed this with iridescent gold glimmer.
Well, thank you so very much for looking and I wish you all a most wonderful weekend!
