Well the weather has finally calmed down here, I hope it has where you are too :) Heading into Memorial Day weekend with some nice weather I hope!
Today's card is for the Digital Challenge over at Lily Pad cards. I'm also playing along with Wee Memories Stamps challenge.
Without further ado ;)
I started by printing the files from my computer, I don't have a digital cutter so I did everything by hand. Once I saw the shapes in the file I knew I wanted to build with the base of the pot. I cut out about 20 pieces of just the flower pot base. I inked them all with brushed corduroy first, then I edged with walnut stain. For some added texture I stamped the Hero Arts Envelope Pattern with walnut stain. I was trying to make it look like a deck. I'm pretty happy with how it came out :)
I printed the flower pot out again on teal then stamped it with versa mark and Hero Arts Reversed Flowers and Leaves.
The flowers, leaves, and stems are all from Hero Arts Dots N Flowers. I stamped them, fussy cut them, outlined them with marker, and added stardust stickles (of course!). The centers are black pearls.
I stamped the sentiment in jet black (ranger) and accented with some dark teal rhinestones.
I hope you all get to enjoy some good weather this weekend and thanks for visiting!
