Well hello there…. this is my second post for the day so if you are looking for my Newton’s Nook Designs March Release post it’s below this one 🙂
Today starts a new challenge over at Add A Little Dazzle this week we have an inspirational photo for you …. and boy do I love this picture…
As you can see I took everything as my inspiration … hehehe… but I was so drawn to the rusty watering can, I had to see if I could achieve the similar effect with the Add A Little Dazzle Craft Metal Sheets.
So to create the watering can I took a piece of Brushed Bronze Add A Little Dazzle Craft Metal, I then added some Inka Gold to it in Copper and Green in patches so to give an uneven effect. I then took some sanding paper and scrubbed at the metal in parts. After I got a rusty look I cut the metal with a watering can die from Wplus9…. here’s where I had a happy accident… I cut my metal facing all of the cut marks on my cutting pads. Usually this would not be the effect I would be after … but here it looks awesome!
The flowers are from Wplus9 ‘Fresh Cut Containers’, the die is from the coordinating set, and the sentiment is from Mama Elephant ‘Everyday Greetings’.
I would really love to know what you think of my card! Please leave me a comment, maybe even subscribe to my YouTube channel or follow my blog If your interested I’m also on Facebook and I share sneak peeks of my projects (and my life) on Instagram.
That’s it from me the next stop on the hop is Larissa. Hope you have a beautiful day and I hope to see you again soon!
