Spring Home Decor

Hello and welcome to another Whimsical Wednesday Challenge.
This weeks Challenge theme is:
"Spring Has Sprung In Our Homes."

If you are new to Whimsical Wednesdays we have a scrapbooking challenge the first Wednesday of the month, and then other paper crafting projects each Wednesday for the rest of the month. You will have 2 weeks to enter each challenge.
For this weeks challenge I decided to to decorate a watering can as a center piece for our table.

Sorry about the pictures I had a really hard time taking them. The flash kept bouncing off the can.
I bought to can for .50 from a thrift store and used my can opener to cut open the top.

I am very new to using vinyl (this is only my second time.) and I don't have very many colors so instead I used "Plantin Schoolbook" to cut out the flowers and grass in white and then used my Bic markers to color the white vinyl the colors I needed. (my vinyl came from "oh my crafts.")I also added i-rock gems to some of the flowers.
I really love the water color effect it gives it!

The Button is tied with "Pink Sherbet" bakers twine from the "Twinery"

Spring is cut from the "Easter 2010" cartridge.
(I cut the flower that was attached off.)
Please be sure to hop over to the Whimsical Wednesday blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has created for your inspiration.
You will find the link there to enter your project for this challenge, and the guidelines. We can’t wait to see what you will create.
I hope you enjoy and have a great day!
