Flower Pots

Willow01, aka Charlene, is the Featured Stamper on Splitcoaststampers today, and girl, oh, girl, does she have a fabulous gallery full of fun and cute creations!!  I saw several of her designs that I'd like to case, but, for now, I chose to case her Remember Today card.  As a part of the challenge, we are required to change two or three things from the originator's creation to make it our own.  I changed:

1.  colors
2.  stamps
3.  added button to ribbon treatment
4.  added pots for my flowers



I used my Rubbernecker Create a Garden sets {Create a Garden Set 1 (#512), Create a Garden Set 2 (#513)}, again.  On Friday, I used these sets to create my background designer paper; today, I'm using the sets as the front and center images.  For the sentiment, I used  the Fall Trilogy set (#480).

Using my Stamp-a-ma-jig for every step, I first stamped the flowers pots, which were colored with Copic markers (E43, E35, E47, E08, W3).  I masked the pots and stamped the stems.  My flower images were also placed via the Stamp-a-ma-jig and stamped with Marina Mist and Baja Breeze (Stampin' Up) and Denim (Adirondack).  The stems and leaves were stamped with Certainly Celery (SU), outlined with Old Olive, and shaded with a blender pen and reinker.  I used Butterscotch (Adirondack) to stamp the dots over the flower images.   I distressed the edges of the cardstock with Tea Dye Distress Ink (Ranger).

For my gingham ribbon treatment, I threaded twine through my chocolate brown button and tied it around the ribbon to gather it.  I adhered my ribbon with X-Press It tape, trimming off the excess to align it with the edge of the cardstock.
