80th Birthday

A friend asked me to make a card for her auntie who will be having her 80th birthday!... She just said... maybe some flowers!
I used dies by Hero Arts to make the watering can and tulips. I cut two watering cans and layered them, coloured them with Black Soot Distress Oxide ink and then added a little Viva Rusty Patina using a rough brush. The tulips were also coloured with Distress Oxides, but I added a little of the same colours in regular Distress Ink to add some shading...  the colours are slightly different. I curved the can slightly, arranged the flowers inside and stuck them in, then mounted the can with some dimensional pads under the centre in order to keep the shape. I cut a couple of clumps of grass from a grass border die in order to ground the die cut.
The sentiment was computer generated in Playful font.

  1. Oh! I love the rusty look of the watering can! So gorgeous and it makes the bright tulips really pop! Thank you so much for playing at The Flower Challenge, Chrissie!
