There’s a video later in this post – I know, quite the rarity around here at the moment LOL. I couldn’t resist though; have you seen all the deliciousness coming out of Waffle Flower recently?! Take, for example, this gorgeous Potted set; perfectly on the succulent/cacti trend and begging out to be watercolored! I took my colour inspiration from a Waffle Flower Blog Post which highlighted gorgeous ways succulents are being used at the moment. In fact this post is over on Waffle Flower too :D

This is such a simple card but the gorgeous image just takes centre stage and not a lot else is needed :D I used Versamark Ink to stamp on watercolour card and white heat embossed. Then it was a case of simply indulging in a little colouring time with the richly pigmented Gansai Tambi paints.

I took a deep breath and hoped I didn’t mess up as I stamped the sweet ‘miss you’ sentiment from the set in Versafine Onyx Black. I added a few sequins and mounted the panel on a Fog card base. As a final touch I made a toning envelope too which hopefully brings out the colour of the terracotta pot :D
