For my project today, I made a pencil holder out of my canister and decorated it with the Cottage Home stamp and die set.


After I glued my canister together using 3 in 1 Glue, I took Brilliance Ink pads in Pearlescent Lime and Pearlescent Sky Blue and rubbed the pads directly on the canister.  You can't tell from the picture but is gives a really pretty shimmery look.
Next I stamped all sides with with the peeled paint stamp from the Toxic stamp set using Pearlescent Sky Blue Brilliance ink. This was then set aside.

Now to make the Cottage Home.  The dies were used to cut out the home and the roof.  The home was die cut from light green paper with the edges sponged with Peeled Paint Distress ink.  The door, window and flowers were stamped with Onyx Black VersaFine ink, heat set then colored with Prisma colored pencils.  The roof was die cut from burlap paper.  The marks on the roof were stamped with Jet Black StazOn Ink. The windows were stamped onto Mixed Media White Paper with Onyx Black VersaFine ink, heat set, colored with Prisma pencils, cut out and glued onto the roof with 3 in 1 Glue.  The House was then glued onto the canister.

I had some individual white flower pieces and sponged two with Lime Brilliance and two with Coral Brilliance, I layered one of each color together and glued two sets to each side. A pink pearl was put in the middle.

Okay! So I totally wrote the wrong set that I'm adding to my wish list, let's be honest both of them are going straight to the top of it :) Your adorable cottage home reminds me of some of the house I saw in Scotland.

Your little desk canister is so cute! A person would have to smile every time they reached for a pen or pencil. I like the shimmery paint technique you used on the box.
