Pottery

I love pottery so when I started to do the EtsyInspired Challenge, EIC127 and looked for inspiration
from the Claylicious shop, I immediately knew what I wanted to do. Look at this pretty pottery:
This was so much fun. I stamped my images (which are unknown-if anyone knows the info on these stamps, I would love to hear from you) by stamping the two on each side and masking those to stamp the middle pot.  Then, I stamped again, sponged and put those on top. I sponged the pots, masking all but the middle of the left one so I could sponge the rim darker.
I  distressed the middle section of the card with a background, distress stamp and sponged the two colors in golds and blues. The folder was Herringbone by Cuttlebug. Added a piece of twine.

I am entering this card into these challenges, also:
Craft Your Passion #46-Male card or project
ECP Challenges #32-Something for the Boys

Recipe:
Stamps: unknown
Paper: Stampin'Up! Chocolate Chip and Baja Breeze, PTI white cardstock, Coredinations core color- unknown color
Ink: Memento Summer Sky, Stazon Saddle Brown, ColorBox fluid chalk inkpad (yellow ochre), Cuttlebug herringbone embossing folder, ribbon SU Baja Breeze and unknown multi-gold, twine

Great job masking your pottery, Benzi. I think it's so neat to learn about what you love: snowmen, birds, birdhouses, singing, potter, Cuddl Duds!
