is now having a monthly feature known as Product Focus and this month
we are focusing on Flowers/Gardening and all the stamps in the
Flowers/Gardening category are all on sale up until 7th March and you
can find them all HERE.
I am showcasing the fabulous SERENITY stamp set , I love the foliage, flowers and birds on this set and I thought this focal image fitted the theme perfectly.
decorated the background with Distress Paints Cracked Pistachio and
Gathered Twigs, I love these two colours together. I added drops of the
paint to a non-stick craft sheet, spritzed with water and then picked up
the beads of colour with my card and then dried with a heat tool, and
then repeated the process until I was happy with the coverage.
stamped the focal image with Black Archival Ink and stamped a few of
the delicate flowers from the stamp set, cut them out and then added to
my background, adding beads to the centre for added interest.
am now thinking more and more about Spring and looking forward to the
longer days and spending more time in my garden, this focal image really
reminds me of my garden.
letters were die cut from mountboard, coloured with Potting Soil
Archival Ink and I then added Tree Branch embossing powder to the top to
give an aged feel.
