DDH6 Challenge - Anything But a Card! Week 1

Our DDH6 Challenge is "Anything But a Card". 

I made two projects using DDH stamp set called Cherry Blossom Bird. 

The first project is a lunch tin that I covered with Julliet SWIC paper collection from The Angel Company and then decorated it with Bazzill Bitty Blossoms and ribbons.  I used the Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Eleven for the image, which is colored with Copic markers.  I painted the entire tin with Modge Podge.

Inside I made some dividers for cards, so the lunch pail can be used to store greeting cards.

The candle was a little tricky.  I found that I could put a piece of tissue paper on a sheet of cardstock and run it through my printer to get the digital image on it.  Then I colored the image with PrismaColor pencils and Gamsol Odorless Mineral Spirits.  Getting the image on to the candle was typical candle stamping - placing the tissue paper on the candle (trimmed closely) and wrapping it with wax paper and then using the heat tool to melt the tissue into the candle.  The paper on the candle is also from TAC's Juliette SWIC collection.  I was pleased that it turned out rather nicely.

Please join us in our Anything But a Card challenge.  Use a Digi Design House stamp set if you possibly can.  We would be thrilled to see your creation.

These are works of art! I can't believe the intensity of color you were able to get on the tissue paper - so pretty!
