Watercolored Flowers In A Planter

Call me weird but I love rainy summer days.  It means my garden gets watered, and I don't have to be running around outside, and possibly get to be in my craft room.  It's like a mandatory day of rest from Mother Nature.  Also, I love lightning storms.  Anyway, I made this card similar to my watercolored bouquet card following Dawn of WPlus9 video.  I love having flower pots on my porch so it was fun to pick the flowers I want growing in them.

First, I stamped the flower pot from Lawn Fawn Our Friendship Grows in Distress vintage photo ink.  Then I stamped stems and flowers from Lawn Fawn Penelope's Blossoms.  I used a wet brush to soften the edges of the stamped images.  I also drag some of the green from the stem to fill in the white gaps between the flowers.  I used watered down Distress ink stormy sky to create the shadow.  I layered the card onto a blue panel die cut from My Favorite Things Blueprint #13 and a white card base.
