Sweet Sarah Kay......


Hello,

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!

love
