My first job was to create the template I used circles and a tool that I bought several weeks ago, a Hot Glue Gun, I love it, wish I had bought one a lot sooner.
Once I had my circles I put them together to make the base for me to work on
I wanted to make some of my own flowers so I used my Dimension Fourth flower stamp and flourish. I used SU Rich Rassleberry ink.
I stamped 12 flowers cut them out and put them together. I used raffia ribbon around the middle of the hat and adhered my four large flowers to the front.
I found some nice dark pink binding sort of ribbon and glued that to the top of the hat circle, from there I used many flowers that I bought from Wild Orchid
I did not want just the bonnet but also an image that was suitable for Easter and found this Penny Black Slapstick stamp which I stamped with Momento Tuxedo Black Ink then coloured with Copics. I used the Nestie No 4 label die to cut her out, I inked around the frame with Versamagic Pink ink for a soft effect, I also cut the same size label with SU Rassleberry card and adhered to the back of the image for strength.
Once I had the image ready I used my crop a dile to punch a hole in the brim of the hat, fixed an eyelet then threaded through this wide gold ribbon, I adhered the image, I also used the same ribbon to make a large bow for the back of my bonnet, then added some gold hat pins.
Finally I used the same SU Rassleberry card to die cut two butterflies which I glued to the hat and top if the hanger ribbon.
I would also like to enter this Easter/Spring project into the following challenges
