Hello crafters! Today I have another project to share using Eileen Hull's new Sizzix Picket Fence dies, this time I used the 3-D Watering Can Scoreboards die. Such a fun die, and perfect for a gift to someone who likes gardening.
I wanted to make a grungy metallic watering can:
The watering can was die cut from mat board, this is an XL die, so you need the extended cutting pads. I used a technique Tim Holtz showed in his September 2012 tag. I randomly cut out pieces of foil tape and covered the whole watering can with them, overlapping them as I went along. I used different tools to make marks in the foil - my needle tool, a ballpoint pen, and my tiny attacher which makes great marks if you use it without having any staples inside. For a similar metal project, with lots of other metal techniques too, see this Metal-ology tag of mine.
The side piece of the watering can was painted silver and distressed with black paint. I also painted the inside of the can silver.
Thank you for looking!
