Terracotta Pot Tutorial

Hi everyone, here is the tutorial I promised in my last post for the terracotta pots. The first thing you will need to do is copy this photo to your hard drive.

Once the photo is on your hard drive, print it on 6x4 photo paper - 9 copies to a page. Now I have some software that came with my camera that allows me to do this easily. Unfortunately, you will have to work this bit out yourself using your software. Once you have worked this out though you can make awesome pots too using these instructions:

Use your pot on cards or scrapbooking pages. Here is another sample, scroll down to my previous post to see three others. Have a great day and thanks for looking.

Stamps: Pocket Silhouettes
Cardstock: Whisper White, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip
Ink: Basic Brown, Really Rust, Old Olive
Accessories: Stampin' Dimensionals, Chocolate Chip Marker, Sanding Block

Your flower pots look wonderful! What a creative idea to start with a picture of a pot, and then 'liven it up' with some ink and pop-dots.

Just love your Terracotta Pots. After a couple of trys, figured out how to print the photos and am now working on an even smaller version using a piece of photo paper 8.9 x 12.7cm per 9 prints. Shall send you a photo via email of a card I have done that I cased off one of yours.
