I need to send out a birthday card to a friend this week so I added a sentiment from Make a Big Statement Clear Stamps and I now have a card ready to go.
You may notice that the top handle of the watering can is missing. This is the process I used to place the daffodils in the can. I first created a mask for the watering can from a PostIt Label and cut it out. I then cut off the top handle and back rim of the mask so that the flowers would appear to be inside the can.
I then stamped the daffodils over the can as shown starting with the leaves and stems first. Once the bouquet was done, I removed the mask and proceeded to stamp the watering can being careful to wipe the ink off of the top handle and rim of each layer before I stamped it. The end result was a beautiful watering can of spring daffodils!
All in all it was a pretty simple process needing only the one mask for the entire card.
I then returned the mask to the watering can to stamp the brick walkway and the fringe of grass.
Here are the Kitchen Sink Stamps I used to create this design:
