We are going to start with the one with the blue Hydrangea flowers.
Die cut the Candy Cup from white mat board and ink with brown shades of Distress Ink. Mat board inks very well.
Hydrangeas from white mat board. I cut two of the biggest size, and quite many from the two smaller sizes. Ink them and press a finger in the centre to shape them a bit. Love the shape of these flowers.
The next pot is the home for a bird instead of a flower. I just had to use this bird from the Birds & Butterflies die.
Die cut a Candy Cup from white mat board and paint it with watered down terra cotta paint.
Birds & Butterflies set, turn the paper around for the second bird, so that they can be layered together. I cut the bodies from a scrap of watercolour paper, that had been inked with Salty Oceans Distress Ink, and the wings from patterned paper. Ink the pieces and layer them together.
Bird Branch Bigz die, paint them brown. Cut leaves from kraft-core paper with the Birds & Butterflies die. I love the leaf with the vein and cut it from two shades of green paper, and removed the veins and placed them in the darker or lighter leaf. Sand them to reveal the kraft core and ink. All the pieces were coated with a thin layer of Distress Stickles Rock Candy.
heart was cut twice from a piece of mat board that had been covered in text paper, inked a bit and layered with a twisted wire in between. A little chitchat sticker was added on top.
The next flowerpot uses the remaining piece of gauze.
Sweet Treats for You set and scraps of papers.
And onto the final pot, with felt roses. The heart circle was stamped with Archival Ink Rose Madder, and the sentiment with Coffee.
Die cut roses from different colours of felt, using the Tattered Pinecone die. Make some of them a bit smaller, by cutting off a piece of the spiral. Roll them up and glue together. Use leftover leaves, swirls and branches from the other flower pots to layer around them.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial and that it inspired you to make some flowerpots.
