The challenge this week over on PCB Pan Pastel Challenges is "florals" and I have decided to challenge myself even further this week .... I have altered an empty coffee can!
I have used Kaiser Kraft papers which have been embossed with the Chrysanthemum stencil and then on some of the papers, I have added Maimeri iridescent paste to add greater height and texture. All papers have been adhered with Maimeri matt gel and then smothered with it on the top too! Once dry, I stamped over the papers with clock and butterfly images, finishing with a sentiment. All these stamps are from the new PCB stamp range (designed by Nikky Hall).
The front (if you can have a front on a circle), has been decorated with roses (tinted with magenta pan pastels and GraphIt glitter shaker pen) and a tag. The tag has been made using the same paper for the outside of the can, stamped with a rose using perfect medium and then coloured with magenta pan pastel. I am very much in love with all the clock images and sentiments, so had to squeeze a stamped clock face in too.
Around the bottom of the can, I have added lace and ribbon as wanted to add even more texture. Lots of embellishments squirrelled away here and there (as finishing touches) and before my can toppled over as it became too weighed down on one side, I stopped sticking anything else to it (lol).
Had a few blogger issues this week, so everything is appearing late or in peculiar order, so apologies. Fingers crossed, all has now been resolved and I can again blog to my hearts content.
Before I forget, my blog candy is still running until 31st may, so you still have time to be in it to win it. Details can be found HERE.
Right, better get some non-crafting chores completed now as work looms tomorrow,
