Stampotique Spring Challenge

Spring is in the Air

I recently attended a workshop where I had my first taster of using wire to make a basket stand for a project so was keen to try again and incorporate into a project along with springs!

I used single strand electric copper wire to form two circles one for the base and top, then run lengths to form the struts and wound around to form the bands
Then applied double lengths to each upright strut eight in totol aprox 10" in length
These were to hold the stamped images attached with glue ans sticky dots, which were coloured with Promarkers and the reverse with Pebeo Copper Acrylic as was the floral frieze around the base
Coiled around paintbrushes to form the springs and the Bees and Butterflies go Boing!
