Vintage Flower Pot *Heartfelt Creations*

The Vintage Floret release is a beautiful collection of ancient luxury. This month’s paper release is similar to the wallpaper of a quaint Parisian café. The textured flower stamps add a quiet delicacy to every project. The typography is a delightful combination of botanical growth and grandmother’s old typewriter stored away in the attic.
There are 5 new PreCut Stamp Sets, one 12x12 Paper Collection, and one beautiful new exclusive Spellbinders die designed for Heartfelt Creations. Leave a comment on the HC blog by 
October 16th and you will be eligible to 
win the entire release 
valued at $134.93. 


I love flower pots! I only wish my yard was full of flower pots. But, until I grow a green thumb, I will have to be satisfied with coloring them. 

I colored this image with Prismacolor pencils and blended with the Prismacolor Colorless Blender. The corners of the image piece is stamped with Tattered Collage. I used Versamark ink and topped with brown shimmer chalk by Pebbles.

I used Archival black ink to stamp these flowers. After die cutting, I sprayed them with Creme de Rouge Glimmer mist and inked the edges with Victorian Velvet Distress Ink.



Thanks for stopping by!
