Darkroom Door released their lovely Essentials 18 Collection towards the end of last year. Here's a mini quilt I've created using some of the fabulous images from the Gardening Vol 1 stamp set.
It's a lovely set to use when making cards or gifts for friends or family blessed with a green thumb!
I enjoyed playing around with some Sculpey clay to create some flower pot buttons and embellishments. They were pretty easy to make.
I used VersaMagic Jumbo Java to stamp the flowerpot image. I then very gently heat set the ink before cutting around the image with sharp pointed scissors and then baked the button following the manufactor's instructions.
I enjoyed adding some hand stitching as I often use a sewing machine, but the texture of the canvas seemed to draw me towards simple embroidery stitching and who was I to argue!
