Altered flower pot with texture & shimmer!

                                            Happy Wednesday!
I wanted to give a gift to a friend who does a lot of gardening!
I decided to alter a clay flower pot and fill it with some gardening items!
The chalkboard marker I painted the wood with CI Paint color
 Antique Gold and then I used a chalk to write Happy Gardening!
The butterfly is a sneak peek of a new product CIP will soon be carrying!
I used Denium CI paint color on the butterfly!
For the texture on the pot I used heavy modeling paste and dabbed it with a make up sponge.  I then used Antique Copper CI paint over the entire pot using a make up sponge to add the color. After the paint dried I went over it randomly and used Burnt Sienna CI paint.
Below you will see a close up of the colors and shimmer!



I zoomed in so you could see the colors and the texture so the color appears a little darker. You will see the random areas with a little bit of the Burnt Sienna paint! I love how well these two colors go together!

 
After the paints was dried I added the moss to the pot and filled the pot up with some fun gifts! 
I added some seeds to the back of the pot and I almost added some gloves but many of them come in only one size and they were to large for my friend!
Here's the amazing colors I used!
 


You still have until Saturday 6pm Eastern time to enter the Mother's Day challenge on the CIP blog!
When you create a project, your name will be entered into a drawing for 5 CI paints! If you would like another chance to win some paints we have a sketch card challenge on our facebook too!
That will end on May 31st!
Thank you for visiting today!
Have a wonderful day!
Michelle
