Watering Can Bouquet

I was out thrifting with my fave person Nicole (AKA Canadian Nickel Scrapn') and spotted this super cute mini watering can for only $2! Look at it! How could I not buy it?

So I brought it home and added some alcohol inks. Perfection! I fell even more in love with it!
I knew it would be perfect for a cute & colourful floral display so I made a bunch of die cuts with my Sizzix Jumbo Tattered Pinecone & Jumbo Tattered Florals dies.
Now to choose my many choices! Of course I had to go with my fave new colours...Cracked Pistachio & Abandoned Coral. Beautiful! Ripe Persimmon & Salty Ocean round out a perfect palette of spring floral colours.
Just look at all those delicious colours! So bright & cheery. Time to assemble my floral display and finished off with a wired green gingham ribbon from May Arts.
I'm already for Spring to arrive in Canada!

Thanks for looking!

Stay Crafty! ~~~julia~~~
