The Window Frame, Grass and Branches
I applied double tick tape to the back of the window frame and attached the small branch from the tree panel and grass sections. I cut thin strips of mounting tape and attached to the back of the window frame and attached it to the scalloped layer. The scalloped layer and window frame was attached to the white card base using pieces of mounting tape.
Coloring the Pots
The flower pots were cut out using yellow cardstock. When applying the color to the pots the yellow shows through to help create the appearance of terracotta. I used mini applicators to apply the inks and started by applying a fine layer of Wild Honey ink over the whole pot and then applied Rusty Hinge and Vintage Photo to add depth of color to create the old aged looking pots.
The Flowers and Foliage
I cut a Leaf Group section and cut the pieces apart to create the foliage base for the largest pot and attached the pieces to the back of the pot using glossy accents. I cut several pieces of the flower stems to create the foliage base for the smaller pots and attached them to the back of the pots using glossy accents.
Forming the Flowers
I cut both sizes of flowers and used my stylus and molding pad to form them. I used the larger flowers for the large pot of foliage and attached them with glossy accents. I used the tiny flowers for the smaller pots and tree branches and attached them with glossy accents.
Completing the Window Card with Flower Pots
The pots were gently rounded using my fingers and were attached to the card base using pieces of mounting tape. Tiny butterflies were attached using glossy accents to complete the scene.
