Pottery Garden


This is another card we made at the craft class with Jane last Friday. It uses half of a 12" x 12" pink scalloped circle. They have them at the Glitter Pot, but I can't find where they've stashed them on the website - although I do know exactly where they are in the shop!

The edges of the front, and inside were rubbed with Tim Holtz distress ink, and then stamped with the leaf stamp from the Pottery Garden Rubber Tapestry Stamp set. This set comes with a block stamp of a row of pots which was inked up with a brown marker, and then stamped directly on the card base. A second set of pots were stamped onto a scrap of card and the individual pots cut out, then shaped using an embossing ball tool on a molding mat. I marked the positions of these 3d'd pots on the card before stamping the plants using the other stamps from the set. The pots were stuck in place with silicone glue. Finished with a dragonfly from another Rubber Stamp Tapestry set - this one has just dragonflies in it - and an unknown greeting stamp (please pretend not to notice that I didn't stamp it straight - was a clear stamp as well, so not sure what my excuse is - too busy nattering probably!) Oh yes, before gluing the 3d pots on, I washed on a little bit of brown and green to make some ground.

We decorated the inside of the card to match the front - this time I paid attention when stamping the greeting!
