I finally managed to get the flower garden stamps but having got my greedy little mitts on them I didn't quite know what to do with them! I spent a very messy, happy time with stencils,embossing paste, stamps and die cuts, plus of course distress ink pads ( I so need the new colours !) I started off with a piece of water colour card which I mini brayered with acrylic paints, its almost covered up with other stuff though, used the embossing paste in random sections through the brick wall stencil,second generation stamped the flowers and spring wording. I think the die cut looks a bit like garden trellis too. Stamped ,coloured and cut out the flowers and added them with a little twine bow.
I'd like to enter it in the following challenges
