Watering Can


Had to try something different last night. Only so many christmas cards you can make (LOL). Wanted a challenge so went through my templates (most unused I may add) and thought I try the watering can, mainly because it was pretty straightforward to cut out. Edges with peel off, and used a dotty stamp and a Dauber in Petal Pink for background,(although the camera hasn't picked this up very well) then stamped flower from Graphicus and coloured using Sansador (or Gamasol otherwise known). Cut out and mounted onto 3d foam onto the card. Made a bow from some spare ribbon and hey presto! Really pleased with my first attempt and doesn't take much longer than a normal card.

The flower is gorgeous Clair, I'm going to have to get that stamp! You asked me on my blog how I paint with Distress Inks, well, I either use a drop of reinker and water it down to the shade I want, or I pick up from the pad with a damp paintbrush or rub the pad onto my acrylic block and dilute the residue as with the reinker. Hope that helps. Annie x
