Secret Garden on Summer Afternoon

Being in a Secret Garden on a Summer Afternoon sounds pretty darn good right now...doesn't it? Guess I'm longing for flowers and warm weather because I've been playing with both of these sets. Here's the first card of a series I created using those products along with the Floral District DSP.

Both the flower cart image and flower image were stamped on Whisper White with Black Stazon ink and then water colored using my Aqua Painter & Classic Inks pooled in the lid of my ink pads. That is my favorite way to color, and I get the best results by layering on the color and making sure not to let the water flow out too be sure to have paper towel handy to blot excess.

I used two different embossing folders here as well...the Tulip Frame and one of the new Needlepoint Border EF. The greeting is from the Itty Bitty Banner set and cut with the coordinating Bitty Banner Framelits.

Make sure to check back here because I'll be posting the rest of the set this week.

This is an absolutely delightful card. Your watercolouring skills are enviable! Love how you used the Secret Garden flower as an accent. --Doris
