Garden Pots

Today I'm sharing two cards I created with tiny flower pot gardens on them! For both cards, I started with watercolor paper and lightly painted a blue background across the top with salty ocean distress ink. The flower pots came from this coloring page and were printed on dark orange cardstock. I sponge around the edges with rusty hinge/vintage photo distress ink to make them look a bit more realistic.
To create my geraniums, I punched a pile of tiny blooms with my scalloped daisy border punch (Fiskars) and glued them to a punched circle. I added a tiny dot to the centers with my white gel pen. For this first card, I also tore some brown paper and added it as dirt across the top of my pots, and added a little garden spider to the corner.
For my second card, I broke out my stash of Flower Soft and created some pretty stems to tuck into my pots. (Here's a great tutorial for creating these stems.)
I'm not sure how well the picture shows it, but I used my bone folder to bend my pots for added dimension.
Supplies and Tools:
Salty Ocean/Black Soot/Rusty Hinge/Vintage Photo/Fired Brick/Abandoned Coral/Mowed Lawn Distress Ink (Tim Holtz), Burlap Twine, Watercolor paper, Frond Punch (Martha Stewart), Decorative Doilies Stamps (Inkadinkado), Summer/Fuchsia/Sweet Pea Flower Soft, Mums the Word stamp set, Scalloped Daisy Border Punch (Fiskars), White Gel Pen, Patterned Bugs (Inkadinkado), Flights of Fancy (Tim Holtz), Inside sentiment (Studio G)

Both cards are lovely, your first flowers look like the ones I bought this year to put in my hanging pots out front, I just used my flower soft the other day for the first time, have to wait to post my card until my sister gets it in the mail, I love how you have used yours, fantastic!
