Inspired to act

Watering can congrats

Sometimes it seems I’m making the same card over and over.  Especially when I review my posts here, it’s alarming to see the same layout repeated.

That’s why I love to see something so refreshing that it inspires me to create something like it.  This card is inspired by Kari Lund, whose recent simple cards made me sit up and take notice.

The watering can here was colored with the marker technique described in this post.  It was a pretty tiny area to work in!

Stamps:  Blooming with Love, Hugs & Wishes

Ink:  StazOn Jet Black, Basic Black (Classic)

Paper:  Sahara Sand, Watercolor Paper, Pumpkin Pie

Other:  Stampin’ Markers and Aqua Painter, 3/4″ Circle Punch, Mat Pack and Piercing Tool

    This is a great card! Is the spout of the can stamped on the Sahara Sand or cut out and overlapped on to it?

      I stamped the entire watering can, colored it. I punched a piece of card stock and used that as a template to trace the circle around the can, then cut out the circle and the spout, which extended beyond the circle. I have done the circle cutting with the Coluzzle, just omitting anything in the way, but this was too small — one slip of the knife and goodbye spout.
