Tags, Tins, & Treats - Day 6

Hi Verve fans, it's Laurie and I'm here to share my take on this month's Project Parade - Tags, Tins, & Treats!

This is probably my favorite Project Parade yet! I LOVE tags, I love tins, and who doesn't love treats!! :-) Not only that, but I L*O*V*E this month's stamps!

So, in keeping with the "things I love" theme...I added buttons, lace trim, ribbon, and even more buttons!
I started with a plain galvanized bucket (you know the kind...the ones you can get for under a $1 at craft and variety stores). I wanted to soften it a bit, so I created an ivory wash (mixed some ivory acrylic paint with some water) and painted it on using a foam brush. I purposely left the brush marks as I was going for a shabby/vintage look. I then stamped the flowers (from the Love's Flower set) using some pink and cream Versamagic (these are chalk inks) Dew Drops.

For my tag, I used my Heart Nestabilities to create the heart shape. The Flower (from the Love's Flower set) is paper pieced using some pretty K & Co patterned paper.
The "Beautiful You" sentiment and pretty flourish is from the Celebrating You set.

Now, for one of the most important parts...the treats! :-) I filled my bucket with Valentine's Candy Corn and tied up the bag using a Raspberry Ghiradelli Chocolate! YUMMMM!

So, now it's your turn! We'd love for you to play along with us and show us your Tags, Tins & Treats! Verve stamps are not required, but if you've got 'em, why not show 'em a little love? ;)

And, as with all of our project parades, we've got prizes!
