Copper Wash Bucket with Mock Orange

Hi my crafty friends!

Today I have another card using Spellbinders Susan's Garden new release "Through the Arbor".  I have used the S5-615 Wash Bucket again and did it in copper and filled it with the  Mock Orange S3-496 from new release.  It is another 6" square tent fold card.

Card base was made from 100# white cardstock.  The 1st mat was cut 5-3/4" square attached to card base using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.   Second mat is black cardstock embossed using Bamboo 3D Embossing Folder from Painter's Garden Collection and it was attached to card front using Clear Double Sided Adhesive.

Using Spellbinders Susan's Garden Specialty Paper to cut 14 - 15 Mock Orange flowers and leaves were cut from watercolor paper.  All were colored with alcohol markers.  Spellbinders Susan's Garden Deluxe Tool Kit was used to shape everything.  Susan's YouTube video for creating the Mock Orange can be found here.   
For the Wash Bucket I cut 1 from Copper Cardstock and 1 from watercolor paper.  I attached the Copper bucket to the watercolor one using Bearly Art Glue.  I used sandpaper to rough the finish and edges.  I lightly brushed on some dark brown ink in different areas then I used a turquoise color ink to brush on in areas.  I also bent it in places to try to give it some dents.  I just kept playing with it until I liked the looks of it.  I did also use to copper rub on to color edges.  I used my fingers to shape the bucket to round it out I then added dimensional tape in lower center back.  I attached to card front using Bearly Art Glue around all outer edges leaving center opening of wash bucket free of glue.  Using Kids Choice Glue I started building my bouquet.  Susan has a YouTube video for creating the bucker found here.

Thanks for stopping by today I do hope that you are inspired to build a bouquet in an old wash bucket.

Spellbinders Susan's Garden new release "Through the Arbor" should hit retailers this week in the US.

Until next time - Happy Creating!
