I have a love-hate relationship with this project and I for one am very happy it’s off my desk and ready to send to someone. The main components are
Springtime Girl stamp from Stamp Anniething and the Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel die. Either of these on their own would be simple but I had the idea of using all four images for Springtime Girl in the wheel. I mean, how cool is that?! I’ll describe some of my troubles below but in the end, I’m very happy that it worked out. Yay!

Lawn Fawn Reveal Wheel Springtime Girl stamp
So my problems were two fold – first, I’ve never used the Reveal Wheel before so there was quite a learning curve. Then second, I was using a digital stamp and the Reveal Wheel relies on stamping the images on the wheel. My first wheel was a disaster but then I found a solution that worked by fussy cutting around the image and then gluing it onto the wheel.
Lastly, the puzzle I had to work out was where to put the window. I hadn’t taped down the wheel, like it was suggested, and ended up with a double cut in the window making it difficult to work around. (mainly because I had already cut the heads off of the part that goes on the wheel so the misalignment meant she didn’t have a chin. LOL Which really shows up with the cactus one.) So even though it’s higher than I would have liked, having the frame there (to help cover the mistake) was actually a cute addition.
The fence in the background is from Polka Dot Pals Fern to help complete the scene. My favorite part, beside feeling accomplished, is the face. I think I like how her eyes turned out and might be the right look I was searching for. It’ll be something I try again.
