Flower Pot Rosie...


I made this card with the cute digi "Flower Pot Rosie", a gift that my friend Wendy
, Creations by Louby Loo, gave me some months ago.


I always love to use these earth tones! I combined different colors of card stock for the background plus a beautiful paper (sorry, I cannot remember the brand!). In the center I put a strip of dry embossed Bazzill card stock, to which I applied the sand technique to bring out the relief. I have painted Rosie with watercolors and my La Plume markers. I printed the digi several times, to give it a 3D image. The little flower of the flower pot and the bow on Rosie’s head both have crystal effect. The flowers are painted in shades of yellow; I added glitter to highlight them and I put a brown crystal on the center of each one, to combine with the background. I placed a butterfly (I love butterflies!) in a corner and I put some small shiny crystals on it wings. I finished decoration with a beautiful ribbon of different earth tones.


I think this is a card for every occasion, so I did not add any special sentiment.
