When I was thinking about this image and how to showcase it…I realized that there was a great space in the front to say something.  What about using it to write a name?  How to make it stand up and be a place card?  Having just returned from storm-central (New England), this seemed like a great reminder that Spring is coming!

This would be a great place to use chalkboard paint…I didn’t have any on hand though.


  1. First Layer:  3×3 (approx.), orange card stock.  The edges of the paper was distressed with Walnut Stain.  I also stamped a background stamp with Walnut Stain.  I used a stamp that has small dots and lines that would give the feel of the pits in a terra cotta pot.
  2. Image:  Chibi flowerpot peeker from Bugaboo Digi Stamps.  Colored with Copics, Copics Spica pens.  I also added some random bridal flowers to give interest and dimension – highlighted with light yellow Copic.  I wrote my name with a white Uniball pen.  I also colored the edge with Y18.
  3. Stand:  I created an attached paper stand in the back after some google research.
