"In the Garden"

In The Garden
 

In my part of the world Spring is definitely in the air!
To this little butterfly (me)
that means 2 things ~ weeds and mowing!
So I stepped back for a moment when I made this card 
and reflected on the quiet time in the garden.
This image from Flonzcraft was perfect for what I had in mind
and can be found here.


I love the techniques on the background on this card.
I have added some inked up paper to some corrugated card
and then stripped some away...and then I also sanded some back.
I love the texture it has created and it is definitely on my "do again" list!

The heart is die cut and then swished through some ink on a craft mat.
The image is only lightly coloured so that it stands out more against the grunge background.

I hope you take the time to pop over to Vintage Stamping Challenges
and check out the amazing talent and ideas from the team.

and there is always a top 3!


Enjoy!

Hi Dot, that background is fab, love all the texture. That image is gorgeous and it really pops against that grungy background
Don't mention weeds, they're still growing here and at the minute they are one step ahead of me lol.

Stunning piece of artwork Dot and such a lovely Vintage feel and I imagine in the flesh it's very tactile as well.
