Pot of Zinnias

Hello my crafty friends!

Today I have a card that once again is adorned with another flower from Spellbinders/Susan's Garden Painter's Garden Collection - the Zinnia.  Wow what fun this flower is there are so many different colors.  The colors I have used on this card were inspired by a picture I saw on line called Queen Red Lime.

Card base is 6" X 6" tent fold card.  Copper mat was cut 5-3/4" X 5-3/4"  (because I wanted to cut down on bulk I cut center out of copper mat leaving 1/2" frame all around) green mat was cut 5-1/2" X 5-1/2" and white was cut 5-1/4" X 5-1/4" then embossed using 3D embossing folder Bamboo Trellis from Painter's Garden Collection.  All were layered onto card front using Bearly Art Glue.

The pot was created using Spellbinders/Susan's Garden  S6-180 Garden Pot & Dahlia from Summer Flora Collection.  The pot was cut twice once from copper cardstock and once from white cardstock.  To age the copper I put on molding pad and hammered on it front and back then used black ink to distress.  The 2 pots were glued together using Bearly Art Glue.  Using my fingers I gently shaped the pot giving it dimension then using Bearly Art Glue on very edge and dimension dots in center back of pot and positioned on card front.

Flowers & leaves were cut from Susan's Garden Specialty Paper SCS-122 using the new Zinnia die set S4-1236 from the new Spellbinders/Susan's Garden Collection - Painter's Garden.  I cut 5 flowers colored with alcohol markers Copic YG17 and the remaining colors are from OLO YG 8.7, RV0.2,YG2.5 (wonderful markers and you can get 10% off if you use code: susan on the OLO site). Susan's Garden Ultimate Tool Kit  T021 was used to shape the flowers.  Susan has a YouTube How to video which can be found here

Thank you for stopping by hope it has been inspirational - now go create!

Until next time - Happy Creating!
