Here is my card for today's color challenge over at SCS. Today we were to use Rich Razzleberry, Crushed Curry and Basic Black. Well, I must say that this was quite the challenge for me because I am just not very fond of the Crushed Curry!! As I sat and thought about what I could make that would include this color I thought about pottery and then I remembered that Wanda (cullenwr) had showed me how to make a vase out of the Ornament stamp from Stampin Up. I thought now it I sponged it up I bet I could get the Crushed Curry to look like a piece of pottery--so that is what I did.Below you will find some pictures show how to make this vase. Now I must say that Wanda did tell me that this was not original with her but I could not remember where she said she found it and I could not find it so I decided to take some pictures of me demonstrating it so that you could give it a try. If anyone know who the originator of this is let me know and I will link back to them as well. But for now you can take a look at these........
Using the Ornament Punch from Stampin Up punch out leaving a space at the bottom--this will give you a flat bottomed vase--super easy!!
Then all you need to do is sponge around the edges to make it look like a piece of pottery!!
The above card was made with one of these vases as the main focal point. I stamped the "reeds" from Stampin Up's Pocket Silhouette set and then attached my finished pot over them--layered it on some Rich Razzleberry and then attached it to my background which I had made using a embossed piece of Basic Black as well as a piece of Razzleberry Lemonade DP--just a few embellishment to finish it off--Hemp, ribbon, and brads. Thanks for stopping by to take a look!! Let me know what you think.
