Happy Monday! This week at BBTB2 our fabulously talented DT sister Shelly is hosting the challenge and chose either the girl or boy Garden2 cut from A Child's Year. I fully intended to do a card and even designed one, but I kept wanting to add and add and add until I figured I need to go BIGGER so out came this door hanger instead. I used the watering can from WIMG mainly because it had a shadow and layers and cut it at 7 1/2" with cut outs in the top 2 layers (done in DS) to frame the little girl. I used a combination of Springy prints from K&Co. Portobello Road, DCWV Nana's Nursery Mat Stack and Making Memories Chloe's Closet.
Here's a close up which shows the script embossing on the top layer of the watering can as well as the MS Spring border punch I used along the edge. the rim and portion of the spout are embossed with Swiss Dots but it still doesn't show up. I cut the girl twice so I could add color to the tulips and also added a tiny butterfly from an MS punch. Yes Leah, of course there are adhesive pearls. LOL
I sort of thought I was done, but it looked like it was missing something so I cut the gardening tools from Walk in my Garden to hang from the side. "Spring Wishes" are peel offs from Stampendous and I think look kind of cool being shiny against the mat silver metallic of the tools. Forgot to mention that at the top of the hanger is a Prima flower with a K&Co covered button brad.
Here you can see the dimension. I used large enough pieces of foam to pop the pieces and enough layers that I didn't even have to use a chipboard backing. It was sturdy enough as is. Now if you're in the mood for Spring be sure to visit BBTB2 so see the gorgeous projects from the rest of the Design Team. They're sure to put a smile on your face even if you're still covered in snow. Gosh is anybody STILL covered in snow? Hope not!
