It's Clearly Spring - Hero Arts Challenge

Happy Friday everyone! I want to send a big welcome out to all my Yahoo Stamping friends that recently subscribed to my blog . Thank you for your continued support, you guys are the BEST!.

As many already know, Hero Arts just recently set up a blog and I created this vase for their first challenge. It was somewhat a challenge in itself trying to setup a flicker account to parttake in the challenge GRRRRR. I have no idea what promoted me to take on this challenge or to do a 3D item instead of a card. To create I cut a piece of acetate to 6 x 9. Stamped design on the front with opaque StazOn ink then added flowers and buttons to the front. Added upper and bottom trim using Fiskar diampnd edger. I then formed it around a vase allowed Krazy glue to set and I waited and I waited LOL. To create the grass to go inside I took scraps (Yepee used some up) and put them through a cripper then shoved them through my paper shredder. To do the mirror image of the flower so that the backside would look as good as the front I used a HA shadow stamp. First stamping flower on it then on to the paper. I attached the flowers to the tips of some artificial stems I had around the house.
