Happy Spring

Hey there!  It is ABC (anything but a card) week again at Tombow and this week we are having a fun hop with PRIZES!

If you arrived at my blog from Debbie's amazing blog, you are right on track.  If not, be sure to pop on over to Debbie's blog and leave her a comment for a chance to win an amazing prize pack from Tombow.

I created this adorable Watering Can from a Silhouette cut file by Snapdragon Snippets.  I used Tombow Mono Multi to adhere all of the print panels to the can and to create the can itself.  The pretty flowers are also a Silhouette cut file from Snapdragon Snippets. You can find it here.  The flower comes with two sets of petals, if you use one your flower will look like a tulip.  I put both together and I think my flowers look a bit more like a rose. :)
I added the Happy Spring cut out (also from the Silhouette store) with a bit more Tombow Mono Multi.  The panels for the sentiment are adhered together with Tombow Stamp Runner and then the whole panel is popped up with Tombow Foam Tabs.

For a few finishing touches, I added some colored flat droplets to the spout using some Tombow Mono Multi, a tiny pink rose to the front with a 1/4 of a Tombow Power Tab to hold it in place and an assortment of May Arts ribbons to the handle.  

Be sure to stop by each of the blogs along the hop and check out the amazing projects  from the rest of my Tombow teamies and our Guest Designer, Michelle.  Don't forget to comment along the way for your chance to win the amazing prize package shown below.

Melissa (you are here)
Michelle (Guest Designer)

The winner will be announced on the Tombow Blog and FB page on Wednesday April 3rd at 3:30 Eastern Time.
