I've wanted to make a flower pot card for very very long time. Mother's Day is a perfect chance to try it out :o) So, here it is, my very first hand made flower pot. I like it :o)
Purple flowers are digis from Beccy's Place. I printed several of them on paper and cut them apart to create dimensional flowers with foam tape. They are colored with water-base markers (scribbled on to acrylic block) and water brush.
|"For dear Mother!"|
All stamping is done with small stamps from Folia Varioustamp Summerbreeze set. I thought that tiny butterflies and dragonflies are perfect to mach with DP-s from Prima Botanical collection. I cut the paper so the butterfly would be on front of the flower pot and dragonfly on the back side. Stamping is done with Momento Dye inks Tuxedo Black and Pear Tart. Edges of the papers are distressed with Ranger Distress ink Vintage Photo.
|"Beautiful Mother's Day"|
Green leaves are diecuted with Marianne Design CreaTables. Blue flowers are made with dbCraft small and middle flower punches and colored with Ranger Distress ink - Broken China. And added Melissa Frances self-adhesive pearls to centers. Also added some Ranger Diamond Sickles to the purple flowers and their leaves.
Hmm, what else... Purple ribbon is bought from fabric store. Sentiments are computer generated. White paper is 300g watercolor paper. I like this texture and thought it would be nice as the base of the flower pot. Decorative borders are made with Nellie's Multi Frame - Border 2. I also used the leftover from this on the bottom of the pot.
