Instructions: Click here to view a larger photo of this project. Card size: 5 x 6". Cut white cardstock and gray cardstock 2 1/8" x 10 1/2" and emboss with brick folder. Sponge with gray for some dimension. Cover outside of can with white, the inside with gray and top with silver Liquid Pearls to close gap at the top. Cut a circle for the inside bottom. Punch 2 colors of green for grass at the bottom. Paint 2 pieces of 1/2" x 5 1/2" Balsa wood white then drill a hole on each side about 2" down from the top. Paint the 1/8" x 4 3/4" dowel silver, slip the hanger hardware onto one end after inserting through holes in the Balsa wood. Glue Balsa wood to the sides of the can with heavy duty glue. To make the roof, cut a piece of white cardstock 4" x 5", fold in half to a triangle shape. Cut 2 pieces of white into triangles for the ends (make the bottoms at least 3 1/8" to give a good slope to the roof and add about 1/8" on both sides of the triangle [not the bottom] to make tabs to glue to the inside of the roof. Cut four 1/4" "planks" for the triangles (each side) and glue them on. Cut 15 borders from Album Tags and Accents Die to use for shingles (alternate scallops on each row). Edge each row of "shingles with gray ink. Glue the roof onto the Balsa wood supports. To make the bucket, cut 2 small circles approximately 1" (one for the inside and one for the outside) out of gray then cut the side of the bucket 1 1/4" x 3 1/2" score the 1 1/4" side at 1/4" and make cuts to the 1" mark (these tabs will glue to the outside bottom.) Once dry, glue the inside bottom in the bucket then cover top of bucket with silver Liquid Pearls just to finish off the top edge. Punch a 1/16" pole on each side of the bucket and tie a silver cord for a handle. Tie the end of a longer piece of silver cord to the bucket handle then glue the other end to the dowel around the middle area. Let dry then wind the cord onto the dowel, (bucket can go up and down to desired height).
To make the climbing roses: stamp about 3 sets of the smallest Floral Fashionista using Rose Madder then sponge with Pink Peony, stamp 1 set with green and sponge with green then die cut. Use the Petite Florals Shaping Mold. Stamp the leaves from Window Box Fillers using Fern Green and sponge with Leaf Green. Cut the leaves off and set aside. On a piece of non-stick craft mat (or other) glue the leaves onto wires in groups and let dry while shaping flowers. There are 2 blossoms for each flower, glue tightly together to form buds. Cut the green blossoms so that the petals are slender and pointed, this will be the rose base sepals, glue these to each rose bud. Glue the roses onto the wire (use heavy duty glue for the roses and leaves). Let dry over-night then lift stem and wrap around the wishing well roof supports, glue here and there with heavy duty glue.
Stamp tulip cart, fence, and tulips using London Gray Ink and die cut. Color each with Copic Markers (or your favorite coloring system). Foam tape some tulips onto the wishing well, glue some inside the cart and some will be for the fence when the base is completed. Foam tape the cart to the well. Well is complete.
For the base: cut a piece of heavy chipboard to 5 x 5" and cover with green decorative paper. Punch grass for fence and glue to the inside of 2 pieces of fence. Glue fence to base on 2 sides (mostly) cutting and folding where necessary to make a small "gateway entrance", glue some of the tulips to the fences. Make a small mark with pencil, where the well will go then glue some Prills and Flowersoft to the base outside of where the well will go. Glitter the ground, the roof and all the flowers.
