Smell the Roses

Something a little different today.
I have had a couple of plant pots sat waiting to be loved for ages, so on Saturday when I was trying to decide what else to make for the Clarity 4 day deal shows this one was finally put to use!
I rubbed the pot with some Inca Gold paint in Rose red, stamped the roses onto tissue paper in Archival and then stuck to the pot with Glue & Seal, normally when I use tissue paper I try to disguise it but I wanted the added interest this time.
I also used my Clarity Scrabble set for the text, I coloured & shaded with a magenta Prisma pencil. 
Finally I added some Gold coloured Inca gold to all the tissue paper overlaps.
I know its quite rustic and not to everybody's taste but I hope you like it!

See you soon.
