MSRS Cloisonne Pot
copper embossing powder
white or cream colored pencil
yellow colored pencil
brown or terra cotta dye inkpad
Cut the green cardstock into several 4 1/4" x 1 1/2" pieces and fold them in half lenghtwise.
Using a scissors, cut each leaf as shown in the picture. Start at the middle of the bottom of the folded cardstock and cut straight up approximately 1/4" before you move the scissors cutting closer to the fold. Now cut back toward the center and up the length of the piece slowly coming closer to the fold again making a sharp point at the end. This will give you the leaf and a "handle" at the bottom. Make several of these.
Open up the folded leaves and lay them flat. Using a white or cream colored pencil make lines across the leaf as shown. Try to make them random for a more natural look. Border each leaf with yellow pencil as shown. Do the pencil work on each side.
Stamp and emboss the pot onto the brown cardstock. Stipple on some brown ink for a shadow effect. Cut the pot as shown in the picture. Turn the pot over and tape the leaves to the pot. Pinch the leaves for a three dimensional look. Attach the pot and leaves to a card. Enjoy!
