More Bali Breeze

I had this Bali Breeze paper out from yesterday's card, and this image has been sitting, colored, on my desk for a while. So I tossed them together.

These herb pots are from an old retired Stampin' Up set, Sweet Herbs. I think it was the second stamp set I ever bought. I stamped it on watercolor paper and colored with markers and a watercolor brush. Sorry, I don't remember what colors I used.

The green circles (in the background) were each cut with a Nestablities die or a circle punch. Then I stitched around the circles in green (so it's hard to see). The little tag is a cuttlebug die, which I layered on rust card stock and trimmed for a layer.

Recipe:
Stamps: Sweet Herbs (SU)
Paper: Really rust, watercolor, white, rose red, Bali Breeze (SU)
Ink: Palette Noir; SU markers
Other: circle punches, Nestablities circle die, Cuttlebug tag die, watercolor brush, American Crafts ribbon, Heidi Swapp jewels, dimensionals, sewing machine and thread, American Crafts blue glitter pen.
