Shabby Chic Easter project

As some of you will know, I love Shabby Chic style. Here is a little project inspired by something I saw on Pinterest...

I painted a little peat pot, first with gesso and then with Titan Buff acrylic paint. I lined it with printed tissue paper aged with some Vintage Photo Distress ink, made a handle out of raffia wire and added a rose. I filled it with moss (can't see that on the photo), and added an aged rose and some little eggs of course and voila...

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
