DIY Hanging Planter

Hello there, it's Jenny here again and my card today features a floral hanging plant which has been made using various stamp sets...

What sparked this idea was the round bottomed pot in Waffleflowers Spice Garden stamp set... I figured it would look good as a hanging pot and remembered the dotted pattern stamp in Avery Elle's Indigo set which would make a good macrame or chain style of hanger!
Now, the dotted border stamp does come as a strip of three on the one piece so I just cut a strip off carefully with my scissors... they can easily fit back together again.

I stamped and water-coloured the pot and did the same with leaves and flowers from Altenew's Doodle Blooms and used the coordinating dies to cut them out. I cut a slit in the top of the pot so I could tuck the greenery down inside. Here's how I stamped the plant pot holder and arranged the leaves. The dotted border stamp is easy to curve and follow the shape of the pot and I used masking to help stamp the shorter pieces of the pattern.

I added a few flowers which are stamped in Altenews Limestone ink and just a touch of grey watercolour to give them a bit of shape and definition...

For the backdrop I added loose watercolour in shades of yellow distress ink with the smooshing technique and when it was dry I stamped the dotted border again to make the hanging chain/macrame. The sentiment is from Avery Elle's Fuchsia stamp set which I thought was quite a nice phrase for any occasion.


Thanks for stopping by :)
