2 more challenges!

 This card is for Gina K's challenge of use metal.  So I used an old pop can, cut off the top and bottom and used my flower dies in the Big Shot.  I used the Copic airbrush system to color them.  The background is a Technique Junkie herringbone that uses left over strips of paper.   I've had that piece sitting around for MONTHS and for some reason today I was able to think it would work for this.  I have done the thing to cut some things out of old pop cans before but this is the first time I colored it with the airbrush.  I really like it too   The tag is from Gina K's Fanciful Tags set stamped on the Spellbinder Fancy tag die.
Since I also used something I would have thrown away (or recycled), this qualifies for the Our Creative Corner Challenge too.

This one is for Gina K's Sketch challenge.  I must admit, this was a little intimidating and a real challenge.  Those little squares are hard to figure out what to put in them.  I finally decided on Friends Forever set.  I was able to stamp a piece of each one of the flowers on the larger squares.  Then used the stamp positioner to get the greeting (unknown) on the smaller ones.  I colored them with Prisma pencils and gamsol. Really the purples ones don't look like such a crappy job in real life.   Please don't ask about the background.  This is another one I've had stuffed in my 'backgrounds to use later' drawer and I don't have a clue what I used anymore.  All I can tell you is was on glossy paper.  I looked through my 'stuff' to see if I could tell what I used but can't.  Sorry.
