Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge 25 - For Mom


The challenge this week at Cheery Lynn Designs challenge blog is For Mom.  I was inspired by an entry from Joann and decided to try my hand at making a watering can.  This is 6 inches tall from the base to the top.  I got a little carried away, lol.

The basic shape was created with my Oval Stacker Nesting dies then I used the matching  Oval Doily Stackera to create the base and the topper.  I die cut a Kiwi Oval Frame to which I added a piece of French Lattice Small.  Then I added all the flowers and flourishes.  I used Fanciful FlourishDarling DaisiesJudy's Blooms, Olive Branches, Stacker Flower 3, and Leaf.  To create the handle I die cut Country Girl border out of white and also plum card stock, then layered them for some added support.  Adding the spout was quite a challenge so I used Anastasia Border to secure it to the watering can.  The last step was to add an Exotic Butterflies Small 2.  This was quite a project and it took me about 8 hours to complete, phew!  But I am really pleased with how it turned out.
