A Sprinkle of Sunshine...

I made this little (and I mean little) water bucket today for Challenge #20 on YNS Challenge Blog...The challenge was Flower Power! and I thought there was nothing better than a bucket of blossoms...

I got the little water bucket from Michael's a LONG time ago because I thought it was so cute but hadn't done anything with it. Today I painted it white, added some excelsior grass and then painted some little sticks to act as flower stems. Then I stamped some flowers using two sets (Flower Pots and Kite Flying Fhiona)from YNS. I punched several Fiskars punches to make additional flowers in the "arrangement". After coloring, cutting out and punching all the flowers and the sun, I applied them to the sticks then arranged them in the water bucket. The finishing touches were some dotty ribbon, a bit of stickles and some pearl Liquid Pearls...And VOILA...A cute little bit of sunshine right for my craft room!

Hey, why not upload a card to the challenge blog. The only stipulation is that it should have stamping and FLOWERS...Heck, with a random number generator, everyone has a fair chance of winning some fun prizes from YNS right???

Share more later...
