Altered Soup Can

ULAS (Up Late and Stamping) Challenge
I have been checking some blogs and I just love them. Last night, I saw Diane's blog and decided to do her challenge. I have been saving some empty soup cans and this is what I came up with. I am hooked to this Dashing SU DSP, so I am using it...again. I punched the poinsettias using the 3/4 punch and used Real Red and Old Olive for the background paper. My Crop-a-Dile came in really handy for this job-punching on the can to secure my poinsettia flowers with eyelets all around. For the handle, I used Real Red and Old Olive strip of paper and used eyelets on top. I have some white wires and I twisted them and added it to the handle strip. The tag is stamped twice in Real Red and River Rock ink on Very Vanilla paper. I then trim the Real Red and mounted it on dimensionals. If you are interested in playing here is Diane's blog :
