My project for today is for Sharon's (notimetostamp) weekly Friday challenge: "Just a Little Thing," to make a small, tiny gift for Mother's Day!
I've held onto this little (3 1/2" high) watering can that I purchased from Michaels just for today! One fresh daisy inserted in the top would be a perfect touch, but alas, no daisies here! In any case, this would make a quick and easy project!
I began by making a border for my watercoloring can with a Martha Stewart Picket Border punch, punching out Stampin' Up's retired Marigold Morning cardstock. (Check out Joan Fricker's Monday Sale at her blog, you may find this border punch there!) I then layered a strip of May Art's ribbon over the fence border. I purchased my May Art's Ribbon from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store, found here.
Stampin' Up's "Stampin' Around Blooms & Bulbs" wheel provided my little seed packet images. I rolled my Blooms & Bulbs wheel across my Memento Tuxedo Black ink pad, applying it to Neenah's Natural White cardstock. I then colored my images with numerous Copic markers, before cutting them out to apply them to the can with red sticky tape.
I finished off the can with more May Art's ribbon, along with a linen thread tied seed packet hanging as a mini tag.
