Flower Seeds

Time for another stamping challenge over at Hels' blog.  This week the challenge is to use Jars/Bottles OR Booze.  Had to think about this for a while as I do not have a jar or bottle stamp but I did eventually find a tiny little bottle/jar in my stash, after much searching I may add.
Those are real seeds I have added to my bottle too.  Good job I'm a keen gardener and have lots of seeds lying around.  I printed the 'Seeds' text on the printer and then simply glued to the bottle.  I stamped the Plume onto the decorative card with Victorian Velvet DI ink.
I made stems using Grungepaper and coloured with peeled paint DI ink.  Stamped the circles from the Stitched & Tied Sheet onto some K & Co decorative paper and added to the stems.  The centres of the flowers are from the same sheet and stamped onto the same card all with StazOn timber brown ink.  The pot is stamped onto decorative card and bent slightly to give some shape and I have added a bow and my seeds bottle.  To complete, I have added a sentiment and some small pearls.  Enjoy your Monday, Tracy x

This is really lovely, Tracy.
You can't beat green and pink together, especially when its about plants.

What kind of seeds have you got in your little bottle, I want to know???
Funny, but I also am doing this one this week. Haven't started it yet, but the plans are in my head.

That little bottle is cute. Did it start off with beads in it??

I love your flowers. Are they stamps?

You, have a lovely evening, Tracy. We will meet online again tomorrow, I don't doubt.

I can say have a lovely evening, as it really is evening, coming up. Often you find me blogging in the wee small hours, but not today.

I love collecting seeds. We could do a swap!!
(Got some burgudy sunflower seeds for next year.)
