More Mushrooms


Today is the last day of the fun Eileen Hull Sizzix dies and Stampendous Mushrooms hop.

Today I have made a fun mushroom pencil holder for my project.



To create the canister base I started by stenciling the Large Scales Stencil on the die cut panels with Regular embossing paste.



I used my paper piercer to score the paste on the scored lines.



I covered the wet paste with embossing powder and shook the excess back into the bottle.



Then I heated it until it melted.



I repeated this process on the bottom of the mushroom that I die cut out of cardstock.


I die cut the top part of the Cottage Home mushroom out of white cardstock and stamped the details on to it.



I folded the panels and adhered the edges to create the canister.


After I colored everything I adhered it to the canister.




Now it sits on my craft table with my colored pencils in it!



And...there are prizes!!!

Embossed texture paste makes for a wonderful mushroom home. Scoring the texture paste was a very nice (and probably necessary) detail that I wouldn't have thought of. Thank you.
