Pots of Sugar and Spice

What can you do with tired old terracotta pots?. Spice them up of course with Sugar and Spice stamps and a couple of pots of acrylic paint.

Other items used: Multi-Purpose Sealer, Opaque White Ink Pen and Modge Podge, Stazon Watermark Ink Pad





Seal both the inside and outside of the pot and allow to dry. Paint the outside and the inside rim of the pot with black paint and allow to dry.





I used the different Flower Stamps from most of the Sugar and Spice sets. There is no need to use a block to mount you stamp as you need it to mould to the shape of the pot.

Using the Stazon Watermark Ink, stamp your chosen flowers on the pot. Fill in the gaps with the smaller flowers. Outline the flowers with your white pen.



Paint the flowers. Pretty them up with patterns to make them funky. Write words around the rim of the pot with your white pen. Seal the pot again inside and out with the Multi-Purpose Sealer. I did use a glitter Modge Podge around the collar of the pot and the tray.




How about this theme? Flutter Bye's..........................I love Flutter Byes.







These are the Funky Flower Stamps turned into Funky Flutter Byes. I just painted four of the petals and added some gems for antennae.





Have a go. The Sugar and Spice team would love to see your take on this.

Love
