Good Sunday morning. I have a die cut watering can and flowers card to share with you today made using Rubbernecker Stamps Watering Can, Large Ivy, Flower Buds and Rectangle Combo #2. I may have gone a little overboard with the ivy covered frame but but I really like the contrast of the all white with the colorful watering can, green ivy and flowers. I think the tiny sparkling clear sequins adds interest and fills in the blank space.
The Ivy Frame
- Cut the rectangle frame using white cardstock.
- Cut several ivy sections using white cardstock.
- Trim the ivy sections as needed and attach them to the frame using glossy accents.
- Apply thin strips of mounting tape to the back of the frame and attach it to the white card base.
Coloring the Watering Can
- Cut the can using gray cardstock.
- Apply Wild Honey ink to key spots on the can using a mini applicator and blend the color out on the body of the can.
- Apply Rusty Hinge ink to key spots using a mini applicator to add depth of color and create a distressed appearance.
The Die Cut Watering Can and Flowers
- Cut several sections of ivy using green cardstock.
- Attach the ivy sections to the back of the watering can using glossy accents.
- Trim the ivy as needed to create a balanced arrangement.
- Cut the flower buds using purple cardstock.
- Form the flowers using a tiny tipped stylus and molding pad.
- Punch several 1/4″ circles, apply glossy accents to cover the circle and attach three flowers to each to create the puffy flowers.
- Attach the flowers to the using glossy accents ivy to finish the arrangement.
- Attach a double layer of mounting tape to the back of the watering can and a few rolled glue dots to the back of several flowers and attach the can to the card base.
Th Sparkling Clear Sequins
- Apply tiny drops of glossy accents to the card base.
- Pick up the tiny sequins with tweezers and attach them to the card base.
I hope you enjoyed seeing my die cut watering can and flowers project. I probably added way too many sparkling sequins but once I started adding them I just couldn’t seem to stop. Are sparkling sequins used with a rusty old watering can pushing design a little too far out? Maybe! Would it have been better with a couple small purple butterflies instead? Maybe! The white on white background is definitely in stark contrast with the distressed watering can but I like how it turned out. Thank you for coming by and I hope you have a great Sunday.
