Joint Venture Project - Altered Ribbon Spool

Good Morning Cheery Lynn fans, Donna here with my project for the joint venture with Prickley Pear

I've created a large Ribbon spool by using a toilet roll and a couple circle stacker dies.
We're doing a joint venture with Prickley Pear all week long, you can see what their team has created here
I covered the toilet roll with black cardstock to make it sturdier then covered it using Graphic 45 papers. I also added some lace to the bottom and the top of the roll. I cut out a couple circles using the Stackers circle dies to create the top and bottom reels, and glued them to the centre roll using a hot glue gun. I used the Cutie 2 to create a nice border all along the top.

 On the bottom base I added some Shabby Rose Frantage and then created some flowers using the Daisy Strip, and some Flourish Leaf Strip. Behind the flowers are some hearts  which are from Prickley Pear. I stamped them onto some of the papers, then cut them out, the largest heart was cut out using the Matching die for the stamp set. I also used Sophie's Heart to create a lovely base for it all to sit onto.
For the top I used the Gears Stamp set and matching die to decorate. A couple of the gears I used Frantage embossing powder on them. Each of the gears was stamped using both brown and black ink. The flowers are all the Sweet Williams, where I used both the Sweet Williams die as well as the Sweet Williams strip die. Sentiment is from the same Heart key Crown stamp set.

A complete list of dies and other products is listed below.
