xox and Congrats - Heather McMahon

Hello. It's Heather McMahon here. I hope you're having a great week.
I thought I'd make some cards for a change. 
I've used loads of Dusty Attic products on these.

Aren't those mason jars cute? I covered the Dusty Attic chipboard jars with paper and glued a calico cover over the lid. I tied the calico covers on with twine and added a tag to each one with the sentiment stamped on it.
Here are some close ups:

To make the background, I first brushed on a few different water colours. I then added some silver Dusty in Colour paint in lines up and down the page. I then stamped over the top with a crackle stamp.

When the background was dry I added all the Dusty Attic chipboard and flowers along the bottom part of the card before adhering the mason jars on top. I die cut some butterflies and the cards were done!

Dusty Attic products used:

Mason Jars DA0506
Trellis large DA1031
mini Blossoms DA1090 
Dusty in Bloom Smokey Blue
Dusty in Bloom Vintage Rose
Dusty Roses - assorted colours
Dusty in Colour paint - silver DA0927

Happy scrappin'!
