Distress Greenhouse Potted Plants
by Jeanne Jachna
Hi friends! It's Jeanne here today! I thought I'd break out the Greenhouse Potted Plants Sidekick Frame and Stencil Set. I know you've seen some samples from the rest of the team.. now it's my turn! :P I'm always amazed how changing the colors up can give such a different look to a design.
I love brights and a rainbow of color on everything I make !
I started by die cutting the frame and then using the stencil to ink the potted plants with distress ink. I used a Yoseng make up brush to apply the ink (from Amazon). Using brushes means you don't have to apply pressure so no hard lines or worry about tearing your die cuts.
I layered the die over a panel that I colored with distress ink in pastel shades of orange, yellow and pink. The soft background makes the colored die cuts pop. The sentiment is from the Springtime Greetings Clear Stamp Set and is stamped directly on the soft pastel panel.
The small and delicate leaves and birds were cut from scraps that I inked with distress ink. I had lots of fun arranging them, tucking the leaves inside the pots and placing the birds on the branches.
