Welcome to our first WMS customer blog hop!! I am delighted that you are stopping by and I can't wait to see what everyone has made!!!
Our theme was 'Spring' and I couldn't get past an image in my head of a little watering can filled up with flowers, so I made it for my blog hop card!! I used stamps from Sewing Box Hugs for the flowers, leaves and sentiment. And I stamped up a butterfly from the Earth Angel set, I love how you can customize the butterflies from that set, I made up a little paper doily style butterfly.
So if you're keen to hop on and see all of the fabulous creations awaiting you, simply work your way through this list, or scroll on down for more details on my watering can card, and a freebie!!
Since I was colouring a stack of flowers to fill my watering can I worked quickly and applied a base colour of buttercup or pale pink (copic marker) all over the flower, then I just went back in and over-coloured portions of the flowers in delicate pinks. you can see from the pic below that I wasn't too careful around the outlines, these flowers were destined to be cut out with scissors and I wanted the colour to run all the way up to the cut edge. Not having to be very precise at the edges was a great timesaver.
Below you can see a sample of the template for the Watering can card front cut out. You will notice that I didn't cut out the space under the top handle, for my card I filled that area with adhesive and stuck flowers all over it. I popped a few up on dimensionals to add a bit of depth.
I used a kraft card to make my card front and card base but the eagle eyed among you will see something familiar about the pattern on this sample...LOL!!!
If you would like a Watering can card Template I am offering this up as a freebie at my store.
You can access the freebie by clicking here, (it is saved on google so I believe folks with google access may download it) or you can access it at my store later today, I'll be trying to add it there too!.
Hope it tickles!
