The sketch reminded me of a vase so I decided to create some faux clay pots as the focal image for my card. Here is how everything came together.
1. Create pots using an Envelope Punch board. Punch the bottom corners off two small rectangular pieces of paper. Note: the rectangles are different sizes which create two uniquely-shaped pots when punched.
|Trim off the top of the long flat pot to form the brim.|
|Trim the larger wide pot to a desirable height.|
3. Spread the terra cotta colored mixture onto the white paper pot pieces using the knife. Allow to dry.
4. Assemble the flat clay pot. Attach the brim with book binding glue and allow it to dry.
Assemble the card using the sketch and coordinating papers.
1. Create the foliage and flowers with punches and neon Fire and Ice "art orphans." Click HERE to get a refresher on my art orphan technique.
|I used a trick I saw on Pinterest to create leaves for my violet plant. Trim the petals of a retro flower into pointed leaf shapes. Super cute and easy!|
|Add centers to the flowers with Liquid Pearls in Platinum Pearl.|
