Hello friends!
I am popping in with a post about "Potted Plants"!
( now say that 3 times fast!..... lots of "p", right?) 😁
Potted Plants Stamp & Die Bundle

My card today was created for the October Blog Hop and then I decided to share the circle card for the hop.  It may be TMI for one post with two potted plants cards!!?

So, here is the "leftover"---still a goodie, I promise!😉

Like my circle card seen in the Release Blog Hop, I used the same approach for the watercolor stamping. Be sure to comment to win in the blog hop post, a lucky $20 Altenew Gift Card winner will be announced on Oct 15th right here in my blog!

The watercolor mix is something that gets me every time.
You just never know until you make it! When it comes to color-mixing, the colors sometimes has a mind of its own. No color-mixing will ever turn out exactly the same or what you originally have in mind. But I guess that is the beauty of watercoloring.

To go with the bright colors and sentiment, I thought it is most appropriate to use the Warp Speed Stencil for the background. SO easy to do and SO effective! Wouldn't these images be perfect for making book marks? The stamp set comes with such a nice and encouraging sentiment!

I added two strips of Washi Paper ( Dots in Maple and Leaf) which really grounded the image.
The Washi Tape also provided some extra burst of colors and interest.

And oh...by the way, I did cut a small slit with an Exacto knife at the edge of the pot.
That way, I can "insert" (or shall we say "grow"?) the plant properly!

The sentiment is embossed with Antique Gold Embossing Powder.
Gotta go with the shinny theme, right?
I know this Potted Plant is super popular, get yours before they are gone!

Love this vibrant and cheerful card, LOVING the washi tape to ground the images, so pretty and easy peasy. I love the plant actually IN the pot as you did cutting a slit in the pot image!
