Apothecary Flower Pot Thank You

Hello!  This card was made in October for one of the QFTD challenges that month - in honor of the Queen, Claudia aka CJZim.  Her gallery is AMAZING!! I had several cards I wanted to CASE but I just kept going back to this beauty: { Claudia’s gorgeous Brayered Elements Card }

I loved that Claudia used a brayering technique to color her Flower Pot, so I decided to use a similar Acetate Background technique.  First I die cut the Spellbinders Flower Pot and used a bone folder to get the curve, then to create the look of the flower pot, I used several different markers on Acetate, spritzed with water and pressed onto my card stock.  then I punched and curved the flowers and leaves using embossing styluses.

Thanks everyone for looking!!

Audzi, I am SO happy for you to have a blog!!!!! I'm not sure what it is, but I find it hard to get over to SCS to do commenting and easier to visit blogs. SO glad you are among us bloggers now!

Love this flower pot, I mean, it's so faux! It looks like you cut a pot in half and somehow delicately attached it to a card front. Great job!
