PSC41 - Wags 'n Whiskers - Altered Can

Good morning and Happy Sunday! Today's challenge on Paper Sundaes is Natural Woman - that means using a woman image plus something from nature. For my project I used the Iris fairy image from our sponsor for this week - Wags 'n Whiskers. Instead of making a card I decided to decorated a coffee can - thought it would make a nice gift packaging or a treasure box for my DD.
The image was printed on watercolor paper and watercolored using SU markers and TH distress inks. The can was wider then I thought and the 12 inch paper didn't get all the way around so I made kind of lace up closure on the back (like how it came out). Then I just added flowers and leaves for decoration.
I'm entering it into Speedy the Cat's Friends challenge - use a die cut or a punch (I used both) and Flutter By Wednesday - anything with butterfly, fairy or angel.

Don't forget, Paper Sundaes is currently holding a DT call, so if you would like to join us and become one of the Sundae Girls you have until Tuesday, October 26th to apply!

Image: Wags 'n Whiskers - Iris
Coloring - SU markers, TH distress ink, aquapainter
Paper: CS - SU Melon Mambo, DP - DCWV Spring glitter pack
Other: Spellbinders - label, meddalion dies, border punch, flowers, leaves, ribbon
