Make a Wish

Morning Peeps, hope your all having a fab weekend.

I'm a tad late in posting this morning as I have been out walking Ollie in the National Trust park with a friend I have made at the Puppy training school, Jane, and her puppy Milly.  Both Ollie and Milly are smitten with each other since meeting and every week it's a race  to get to each other, not good when your trying to get Ollie to heel all the way to the door cos as soon as he clops eyes on Milly all training goes out the window.  They have been bounding around the park for 2 hours and Ollie is now black, not white and in need of a bath but he's clapsed in a heap, lol.

Today is my turn to post on the NEW Make It Crafty Inspiration Blog, yep NEW.  The team have split into two some remaining on the challenge blog and others going to the inspirational store blog.  Pop on over and follow us as there's going to be loads of inspiration and tutorials too and having seen the line up I'm sure you guys will pick up a few hints and tips along the way. 

So where was I, oh yeah, I have used the Make It Crafty Wishing Well kit.  The instructions were easy to follow and the results, well hopefully you can tell for yourself.....

I painted the wishing well with a grey acrylic, well I didn't actually have grey so I mixed some white paint with a touch of black.  I then added some snowtex to give the feel that my wishing well has been around a while and had something growing on it, white mould, I did think of painting it green but I kinda like the white and I like to be different.
I have used Fairy Poinsetta Rubber Stamp and coloured her with a combination of copics and polychromos.
Here's a side view. I used the magnolia doohickey for the grass and Marianne Designs Elegance LR0157 and Forest Branch LR0150 for the leaves.  Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts.  I created the base by using the hardback section of an A4 pad and cut out the shape using my Go Kreate die and then painted it with acrylic green paint.
I have trailed the Marianne D Craftables - Guirlande (CR1216), (which incidentally is on sale over at BunnyZoe's, just click on product I have linked it to go straight there), over the roof and added some more flowers.  The large butterfly is my new addition to my stash, a memory box die, and the little dragonfly is a Make It Crafy Mini Dragonfly  Chippie coloured with polychromos.
Here's a view from the other side. You can see the little handle from this side and the filagree detail.  Gosh that Zoe is a genius!
And to save you scrolling back up to the top, here's another look and I cranked up the handle, yes it actually works too, so the little bucket came up a bit higher so you can get a better view and just see all the tiny little details that went into that bucket.

I hope I have inspired you to give this fabulous Wishing Well a go, I promise you won't be disappointed.

Oh and by the way word verification keeps turning itself on, if you see it  on just let me know so I can go back in and turn it off.  Thanks.

Enjoy Easter Sunday everyone.
