Potted plant

Morning all, it is wet and miserable here today hope the weather is better where you are. My card today is an A5 base card and to start with I printed two backing sheets from the Nitwit collection Petal fresh. The first sheet I trimmed to size leaving a small border, before putting it on my base card I inked the edges with forest pine distress ink. With the piece of green backing paper left I cut into two and again inked the edges before placing onto my card. I then used one of my dies with the other backing paper and inked the edges with frayed burlap distress ink. I stamped my sentiment onto the same paper as my die shape and then after inking the edges I placed it onto my die shape before placing it onto my card. The flower pot I stamped is one from Jane Shasky range I coloured this with spectrum noirs, still not very good at colouring but I enjoy it and hopefully will get better with lots more practise. I then trimmed by image leaving a small border and used foam pades to add it to my card. To finish I stamped and coloured the little flowers from the set and added a few gems.
Thank you for taking the time to view my blog, all comments appreciated x
