Today I have an ATC and altered MDF pot to share with you made for the spring flowers theme at A Vintage Journey.
I've made the ATC for a swap I'm involved with over at that Craft place natter and chatter group. The ATC and pot were altered using the same techniques so I'll just focus on the pot.
I started by using distress paints - mustard seed, bundled sage, crushed olive and mowed lawn. I swooshed them onto my craft mat, spritzed with water and put my card into the paints - once I was happy I dried the card and spritzed and flicked with water and dried again.
I cut the card to size to fit the pot sides. I painted the insides of the pot with yellow paint and then set about stamping and cutting and building up the papers for the sides of the pot.
I used a combination of TH stamps, rub ons and diecuts. The lattice die was cut in grungeboard, coloured with distress paints then cut up.
The flowers are all made using the tattered florals die. Once I had finished the papers I stuck them onto the pot and added the florals.
I'd like to enter this into the following challenges:
A Vintage Journeyvintagejourney: Spring flowers
ABACanythingbutacard: Spring forward
totally Gorjuss:totallygorjuss Diecuts or punches
Sweet stampinsweetstampinchallengeblog: Lots of layers.
Hope you have a great Friday - we're planning on going to a playbarn and a museum - after the scarecrow is done!
