Mod Vases

Hello. I was checking out the June color trends challenge over on the CLASSroom blog and the row of little vases caught my eye. I love when I don't have a stamp and it challenges me to create the look with out the vase.

So I started with an 110 lbs white top folding card base. I stamped one of the dots from Essential by Ellen Bokeh Dots in the colored ink then rolled the edge in kraft ink. By making a light pencil line on the card I could get the vases to line up straight. Then masking the top of the vase I stamped the popsicle stick to create the vases neck. I the masked the vase and stamped the flowers from The Stamp Markets Birthday Wishes set in charcoal gray ink. The greeting is also stamped in the gray ink. Finally I coated the top of the vases with Wink of Stella.
It is so hard to get the shimmer to show up in photos. I will also be entering it in the Simon Says Stamp "anything goes" challenge.

Thanks for stopping by, Sue.
