A Potter's Bench
We all need a good work station. If you've seen my craft room you know that my Executive desk is my pride and joy. For my gardening, I've always wanted a nice potter's bench. Mo Manning has a wonderful illustration which was released in rubber through Stamping Bella, aptly named Potter's Bench. You can bet it caught my eye.
Not surprising I stamped this onto Bella's Bestest paper using Memento Tuxedo black ink. Then I added color with copics. I also added ground shading using prismacolor pencils blended with gamsol. This image comes with the sentiment too so you get a twofer. I wanted this to look a little like a state fair prize ribbon so I used a Nestie die to cut out the flower and made the sentiment to look like a banner.
The card base is Neenah Classic Crest solar white, and colored cardstock is a combination of Stampin' Up! Dusty Durango and Bazzil. Design paper is from the 6x6 Basic Grey Hello Lucious paper pack. Machine stitching and a dew drop are the finishing touches.
Hope you all have a great week. Thanks for stopping by.
