TAMIKO'S THURSDAY TEASER - ANYTHING BUT A CARD!

Good morning fellow crafters.  Well, we're past mid-week so I'm sure you're all looking forward to the weekend!  Our assignment for this week's Tamiko's Thursday Teaser is to make anything but a card and I've chosen to make a cute little watering can!
This is "Miko" from the GF "Roll Call" set and you can get her from Tamiko's online store! Or, click on Tamiko's on-line store icon on my sidebar. There are TEN (10) images plus SIX (6) sentiments in this set! I love them all and can't wait to get them all inked up. 
I inked her up with Memento Tuxedo Black and stamped on PTI select white cardstock.  Colored her with Copics, cut her out and mounted her with foam tape to the watering can. 
I have a personal paper florist (thanks Suzan!) and I've used flowers and the butterflies given to me!
If you'd like to make one of these cuties, you'll find the template and instructions on SCS in the Resource file. Below is a partial side view of the watering can.
I also used the MS fence and grass punches.  I adhered the grass to the bottom of the fence,adhered it to the 4 different parts of the watering can and cut the shape to match the contour of each panel, then adhered the sides together to form the can.
You can't see it but I also added crystal lacquer to both the heart and bow in her hair. I used Bazzill "Honeydew" CS for the watering can as you need something sturdy but not too stiff.  The DP is from Basic Grey but I can't remember the name of it at the moment.  It comes together very fast and would make nice favors.
Please check out the wonderful creations the rest of Tamiko's Creative Team has come up with.   
Remember, if you order over $25 from Tamiko's, you get FREE shipping (US only).  Thank you for stopping by today.  Enjoy your weekend, and stay tuned for more fun and surprises next week!  Until then, happy crafting, stay safe, and hug the ones you love!

OK- Teri promised us we'd be blown away and she was right! I am in love with that watering can! I so need to try this project- thanks for the inspiration!! I hope its as easy as you say it is. I think the reason why I like it so much is because of how you decorated it.
