Made By You MondayHeartfelt Thanks/Imaginisce and SRM Stickers

I just placed my Heartfelt Thanks can on Made by You Monday. It is a blog that allows us to inspire each other and I must say there is a lot of inspiration.
I decided since I don't tole paint much as I use to that I would just get some of them there old books out and see what I could do with them. I found this turkey in one, so I downsized it to 40% and started paper piecing it using the Imaginisce "Dino Roar" collection and the "Heartfelt Thanks" sticker from the Thanks SRM Sentiments. The grass behind the turkey is some of the Dino Primordial Ooze paper that I cut into small thin strips and placed them behind the turkey, once I had enough I attached the turkey to the can with pop dots. I also used some Bo Bunny Burnt Orange Dot paper and made a band to go around the center of the can.

The rosette is from a piece of Stomping Ground paper. I cut two 1" x 12" pieces together and scored it every 1/4" until I go it completely scored. I then accordion fold and adhere it to the top Stomping Ground paper circle that I had punched out using a 3 1/2" Marvy Circle punch and attached it to the lid of the Stampendous paint can. I used one of the SRM Sticker from the Thinking of You Sentiment sheet, placed it on a piece of the Stomping Ground paper, fussy cut around it and attached on top of a 2" scalloped circle.I added another SRM Sticker along with some pretty ribbons to the handle of my can. I will be putting candy in and sending off to a couple of sweet little turkeys that I know.
