Hi again folks.
Second post today, scroll down for Sweet Pea Stampers DT piece
OK folks, so this is my DT creation for the Crafters Companion Challenge Blog. This fortnight the theme is to make a 3 dimensional project. I saw a lovely Watering Can project a while ago, and decided I would try this out myself for this theme.
After downloading the pdf's from the link above, I printed them onto some plain white card, and then printed some backing paper on the reverse from my new Peter Rabbit cd. I got this and some rubbah by subscribing to a cardmaking magazine a few weeks ago - great gift eh!!?? I also printed out a little Rabbit motif for the sides of the can.
I cut all the relevant pieces out, and assembled as per the instructions. There was some printed pattern left over, so I made some flowers using those bits - waste not, want not - as the saying goes! I inked the edges of the finished can, and also popped a little border round the bottom of it using a Martha Stewart border punch, with a bit more ink.
Looked a bit lonely for the photo, so I popped some mini daffs in it from my garden, and they gave it the lift it needed - plus the sun came out just at the right time too - fab! I am also entering into this weeks challenge at Totally Papercrafts where the theme is 'Spring', and also at Penny's Challenge, where they have an 'Open' theme this time.
Can't wait to see what goodies you come up with this fortnight peeps. . .
