Spring Canisters

Last night I was in the mood to just play and decided to have a go at Tim's April tag but with my own twist on things.
I decided to create two spring canisters using Eileen Hull's Canister die and I am really pleased with how they turned out.
These canisters also fit perfectly into Eileen Hull's Art With Heart Challenge which this time around is Spring Break.
For my background I used Worn Lipstick and Mustard Seed Distress Inks, applied to a non-stick craft sheet and spritzed with water, mopping up the beads of ink with my card to give a watercolour backdrop.
I have not used my Distress Markers for some time and it was great fun to colour, so relaxing to spend a couple of hours colouring and thinking about nothing else!
I added two handles to the top of my canisters and coloured the lids and bases with the same coordinated Distress Inks.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x x
