Watering the flowers


Another Birthday card for another friend, June has been a busy month for Birthdays and Anniversaries.  This is another of the three Penny Black stamps I just bought and this made me smile as it suits my friend perfectly. Whereas we like a cottage garden look with different heights and plants growing through each other my friend ends to plant small flowers with lots of earth showing, Also their hose doesn't reach their front garden so they have to relay watering cans round to the front garden.

So I coloured the image with Copics, the paper is First Edition Mulberry Kisses. The fence dies is one of my favourites from Doohickey. I used Memory Box cloud dies and stamped a Little Claire sentiment onto the largest one. The butterflies were made with Crafts Too dies.

A couple of people commented on my last PB post that they take the rubber stamp off the wood. I know it makes it easier to store but part of the charm for me is the wood with the pictures. It would be like storing other stamps without their packets which I couldn't do either.
