Acrylic Vase

How time flies. I know I am suppose to show you pictures from my scrapping this weekend and I will. I just need to take the pictures! I have been so busy, going non-stop, but I have this vase up so I will share it.

I made this for a friends birthday, she just turned 17. I started with the bookmark acrylics and stamped with Black Stazon, and colored them with Galaxy Markers. I then embossed the back with Ebb Tide embossing powder. Next I put 1/4 sticky tape around each bookmark and dipped it in Blue Lightning glitter. I punched two scalloped circles for the base and made a little box to fit the bookmark pieces and glued the sides to the box and adhered it to the base with double sided tape. I put a dewdrop in the hole at the top to cover it up.

For the flowers I stamped the Birthday "So Many Scallops" in Ballet Blue and Apricot Appeal. I used a sucker stick and covered it with Sage Shadow. I had a hard time with the dollar bill leaves and finally tore a glue dot in half and used it in two places. I hope she can get them off okay!! I am real happy with how this came out!

Have a great day!
