One last look back at summer

I love the new watering can template that you can buy here, not only is it great for flowers, but it works perfectly with the Penny Black stamp Gardening Assistant 40-236.


Other materials used: Memento Tuxedo Black, Rose Bud & Pear Tart Ink, Copic Markers, The Twinery Pink Sorbet Twine, Micro flower punch, Spellbinders On The Edge S5-168, Glossy Accents, Liquid pearls, Sizzzix Sizzlets Grass and leaves, tiny tag punch, White, Green, Pink, Red and Silver card, grey acrylic paint and Penny Black Summer Fun 30-107.

* Cut out template as per instructions, add detail with strips cut using on the edge die and add shadows with grey acrylic paint.

* Stamp the girl onto white card three times with each of the colours of Memento ink, cut out; colour skin and hair with copics and then paper piece the dress, watering can and hat with the other inked images.

* Add faux droplets of water using glossy accents, stamp the sentiment from Summer Fun and punch out tag and attach to spout of watering can.

* Cut out the grass leaves and flowers and adhere to the watering can, dot the centres of the flowers with liquid pearls and finish off with a butterfly (this was given to me by a friend).

I also thought it would be nice to decorate the inside with the other elements from the stamp.

Thank you for visiting me today, hugs
