Good morning bloggy friends! So glad to see you back. It's been sort of a quiet week in blogland, with Tim's 12 finished and everyone turning their attention to preparations for Christmas. I had hoped to finish the 12 tags, but alas, no time either! Maybe next week.
This week at Our Creative Corner, Anne Marie Hile is our hostess again and she has a color challenge for us. We are to make a holiday project with these colors plus some sparkle. I decided to make a little candy holder gift with a Starbucks bottle that reminds me of a vintage milk bottle I really gussied it up - maybe a bit too much - you decide.
I started with a a doily in front and one in the back as bases - one for my vintage angel image and one for my crinoline poinsettia. I used a piece of vintage style song book paper "Hark the Herald Angels Sing". It's a photo copy because I didn't want to use the original. I aged it with Vintage Photo DI and clear embossing powder.
On the poinsettia side, I used the Tim Holtz Vintage Marketplace letters, layering the light pink over the blue and then glittered the letters and brushed white gesso over the twine for a rustic look.
I created a little charm with a silver glass glittered star and some glass pearls from my jewelry making supplies. A light blue rosette edged with silver embossing and a bit of silver tinsel adorn the cap. I filled the bottle with silver and red wrapped Hershey's Kisses, which unfortunately you can't see through all the embellishments.
That's it for my sweet little jar (or is it my little sweet jar?). How about hoping over to Our Creative Corner's Saturday challenge? Lots of pretty eye candy to jump start your mojo. Come on, what are you waiting for? And thanks so much for stopping by today. I so appreciate your visits and comments!
