I began by creating stencils with the Clouds Dies and post it notes. I sponged on a first layer of ink for my clouds and then used the screen as a secondary stencil to add a little texture. Next, I stamped the sentiment from Petite Pots in Smokey Shadow ink, barely overlapping the clouds. Then, I die cut the pots (also from Petite Pots) from the sandpaper, sponging one of them with Dark Chocolate to alter the color slightly. I also die cut the flowers and stamped them with the coordinating stamps.
What did you pick up at the hardware store? I'm excited to see how you all incorporate your hardware store goodies into your creations!
