Whenever I see a heads up penny on the ground, I have to pick it up and make a wish. I keep on thinking that I will someday put together a dollars worth of lucky heads up pennies and buy a lottery ticket. 100 lucky pennies surely would bring a lucky lottery ticket right? I don't really have a place to keep all those pennies.
This week's Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge is bottle it. I love the bottles that Candy and Tracy altered using Wendy Vecchi fauz crazed glass technique. I remember seeing some cute inexpensive small bottles while I was at my local craft store, Michaels. What a perfect opportunity to finally to make my lucky penny jar. I made my green since it's the colour of the lucky Irish Shamrock! And it fits in with the March Inspiration Emporium Go Green challenge.
I used Meadow Ranger Alcohol Re-inker over matte glue and seal and rock candy crackle paint. I added a ton of Idea-ology bits and pieces. I typed and printed the text on my computer, stuck it to some Tim Holtz Idea-ology Lost and Found paper and it with the Ornate frame and then added a layer of Glossy Accents to make it shine. I used various bits of chain and made the top stay attached to the Jar.
I had so much fun making this jar(Candy you were right), that I have a bunch more ready to go. I am thinking "poison" bottles for Halloween among other things! Here are a bunch of bottles in various stages. From left to right
