Flowerpot Pocket Card

Hi folks! Here's a card I made using Joanna Sheen's 'Blackberry' stamp from her Country Kitchen Stamp range. I also followed the tutorial here for the flower pot pocket card.

I used Bo Bunny papers (wow that kit has made lots of cards and I still have some left) covered the panels. I stamped the image with Black Versafine ink and painted with watercolours. I inked around all the edges. I also used some pretty ribbon and one of my decorative EK Success punches(great for punching through card) for the lip of the flower pot adhering the front part down with foam tape to create dimension. The lovely label shape has been cut using one of Tim Holtz's Sizzix Alterations dies. The Blackberries stamped off the edge are again from the JS set.
I used Prima flowers and leaves, painted them with Pearlidoodles and Cosmic Shimmer paint. Adding a touch of dark brown watercolour paint which 'pooled' in the veins of the leaves. The flowers are held in place using Making Memories brads.
I hope you enjoy your weekend! I'll be starting a 22 hour shift in a while :o(
Ciao for now!
