Today I saw this gorgeous card made by Leni. I dropped everything to see if I could make my own version, substituting a stoneware crock for her bucket. Here is my card.
I hand-drew the shape of the crock onto grey cardstock, then used these little flowers from a Hero Arts sentiment set to simulate the designs often seen on this kind of pottery, shading it with grey and brown inks. Then I stamped and colored 3 hydrangeas and added them to the pot. I'm really pleased with my approximation of these treasures! And thank you, Leni, for your inspiration - I spent a very happy couple of hours putting this together!
