I hope you have had a great weekend so far and have something nice and relaxing planned for today! I am back with another Sensational Sunday Inspiration post for Loves Rubberstamps!
As you know, I have been having a lot of fun with my silhouette and this project is no exception. I didn't get my copics out at all on this project! A few weeks ago, my company did a quarter auction to benefit Relay for Life. I was asked if I would mind providing a gift to help the cause. Cancer has affected so many of us directly or indirectly, so I was glad to help.
It took me several weeks to determine what I would make. Until finally I came up with this...
I love pink, so I thought I could gear this towards breast cancer. I bough three tera cotta pots from the local craft store. I painted them with pink craft paint, then added some crackle medium and let it dry for a few hours. I then added some more white craft paint and let the crackle happen. I decorated the pots with various ribbon, buttons, flowers and lace.
I found these cute little seed pack SVG files at the Cutting Cafe. I cut them out from Echo Park and My Minds Eye paper. Then wrapped them around the cheery flower seeds I had purchased. I cut out circles with my spellbinders dies and used the My Minds Eye Lost and Found clear stamp set to stamp in Worn Lipstick Distress ink the doilies for the labels. I then used rub ons to add the words Love, Faith and Life. I used a seal cut out on the silhouette in black behind the circles, added some fun ribbons and a charm to each pack.
I filled the pots with some dirt and tied some ribbon around them.
Here are close ups of the pots:
