January Technique Club - Project 1

Technique club is tonight, and this month's technique is colouring with a blender pen. We're going to do it two ways. On this, the first of our two projects, the image is coloured using a blender pen and the watercolour crayons.

For this project, we are altering a bottle/jar. I plan to use mine for storing assorted brads that don't have a home to pretty up my craft space. Other uses could be for pearls and jewels, for bath salts, etc....

We're also using some fabulous new products from the new Occasions particular the new framelit dies (and edgelits with matching embossing folders on the next project too!) For that reason I wanted to keep the technique a little more straight forward this month so that the ladies would have time to play with the new dies on the big shot!

Recipe (all SU; except for the tulle which comes form an old bolt I have in my stash;)
Stamps - rue des fleurs *LOVE IT!*, charming
Card stock - crumb cake, basic black
DSP - mocha morning (band around bottle)
Ribbon - crumb cake seam binding
Dies - framelits, labels collection
Accessories - vintage brad, pearl jewels, rose adornments (retired; from last year's mini)
