Altered Item Using Ephemera's Vintage Garden Goodies!

Hello, my friends!
I've got so many big projects on the go that I'm practically running in circles! lol
I thought I'd pop in this evening with a quick share of a project I finished a few days ago. It's another fun one using a free printable from Ephemera's Vintage Garden. As soon as I saw Debbie put THIS page up, I knew just what I was going to do with it!
I've had these two paper mache bottles kicking around for many years. I always intended to paint them with detailed labels. Well...I've been too busy lately playing with paper to do any painting. Am I ever happy about that now because I had lots of fun with this! I even managed to fit a bit of painting in along with the paper. I painted them to replicate an antique tin I have. I should have included the tin in the photo but didn't think of it...of course! lol They turned out just the way I wanted them to! Debbie's fabulous printables were the perfect finishing touch! Oh...I guess the ribbons and flowers were the "finishing" touch but you know what I mean! :o)
Debbie has an Etsy Shop and she just happens to be having a sale right now! Pop on over to  her blog Ephemera's Vintage Garden and read the details!


I neglected to show the top of the lids in the photo but the circle printables on the sheet fit perfectly!
This is the back side:


Thanks so much for stopping by!  :o)

Nancy, these altered paper mache bottles are absolutely GORGEOUS! The black peeking out from behind the lighter color really sets these off.

The vintage art work you have used is awesome. These bottles were just waiting to be made beautiful when the time was right. Love them....and you.
