Close To Nature

This month at Stamping Sensations the challenge is Close To Nature.  Please remember we are a Stamping Challenge and the Stamping must be the main part of your entry, small stamped sentiment or added butterfly will not see your entry considered for the prize.  We are sponsored this month by Chocolate Baroque who are offering a lovely prize  for the winner

For my Close to nature cards I have gone with butterflies and flowers ( and a little bee) The top card uses stamps by Imagination crafts, the background is a small sprig stamp from the set stamped randomly over the paper, was a bit fiddly colouring all those little flowers and leaves but I did like the finished effect.  My second card is ,of course, the ever popular garden flower stamp from Stampers Anonymous.Both cards water coloured using distress ink pads.  Hope you will join us in our challenge .


  1. I always this blue and purple work so well together Joan so really like that one, then lovely blooms on the second.

    Have a lovely and hopefully sunny Sunday.

  4. Joan I just love both your cards. The colours are so beautiful!

  5. Two really beautiful creations, Joan! I love them both - beautiful colouring and gorgeous designs. The Echinacea is one of my favourite flowers but I can't grow them! I think I must have tried half a dozen times and they never come back another year!

  6. Two beautiful cards Joan and so delicately coloured. I especially love the first one with the text in the background, it’s lovely x
