Remember Bill and Ben?

When I was young there was a TV programme called ‘The Flowerpot Men’ and they had a friend called Little Weed https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ozp8uwUWtBY When I saw this little flower image from 2CuteInk it made me nostalgic!

Materials used:
2CuteInk digi stamp – May Flower
Copic pens
stamping card
orange and yellow floral design papers
rectangle die
A5 card blank
greetings sticker

Method:
I printed out 2 copies of the image and coloured them with the Copic pens. Using the rectangle die set I cut one image and a slightly larger mat from the orange paper. I cut the large flower head and the pot from the second image and stuck them over the first image after shaping them a little, to create a 3d look. I covered the front of the card blank with the yellow floral paper then stuck my topper on and finishing off with the sticker greeting.

Thanks for popping in. Take care.

About Pippa

I started crafting at an early age though not always successfully, my pillowcase tennis dress has, thankfully, disappeared into history. Funnily sewing is not something I enjoy! My favourite crafty activity has to be card making, especially stamping which I have been doing for over 20 years and am still a beginner, there is always something new to learn. I also enjoy knitting and crochet. I am not an artist, cannot even draw a straight line with a ruler, but I love colouring in, which is why stamping appeals so much. I am married, a part time HLTA at a local village primary school, have two grown up daughters, one son-in-law and a mad cat called Finnegan. That, in a nutshell, is me.
