In the Garden

Regular visitors will know that I have been working on a couple of commissions lately. One of which was to make some cards for Stamposaurus. I was so surprised and flattered to receive an e-mail from Jayne asking me if I would make some samples for upcoming shows. Jayne sent me this gorgeous greenhouse stamp and the floral buttons to use.  These stamps are great for males and females and I had great fun using them. If you are going along to any of the craft shows over the next few months do stop by the stand and have a look at my cards. I hope Jayne likes my cards which should be arriving at her house today.

The card is an 8" square and I've used some K&Co papers and added some doodling to match the doodly style of the stamp. The stamp has been coloured with Spectrum Noirs, Promarkers and a Sakura clearstar pen. I've then added glossy accents to the windows. The flower border is a Sizzix one I have had for ages and rarely use, swirls made with a Crealie die, daffodils from Wild Orchid. The sentiment is part of the stamp and I found some gingham ribbon which matches the colour scheme. Quite a different colour combo for me but I am trying to make cards in more variety of colours this year.
