A Secret Garden

I have another card here from Sunday's craft session with Jen...

I have used the stunning Secret Garden stamps and Framelits bundle...I love this and I think it's going to get a lot of mileage!

To colour the flower, I tried a new technique...I was having a bit of an experiment with colouring to see what effects I could come up with! For this one, I used the plastic sheet from my Stamp-a-Majig and coloured some Cherry Cobbler marker onto it. I then dipped one of the Blender Pens into the ink and brushed it onto the flower. I continued this way, adding more colour to the darker areas for shading and depth. I think it's very effective and quite realistic looking.

 I stamped the leaves in Always Artichoke and stamped again for a lighter set. I used my Paper Piercing set again to decorate the edge of my white panel before matting onto a Pool Party panel. The sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Sentiment set, stamped in Always Artichoke.

Products used
Cardstock - Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Pool Party
Ink - Always Artichoke, Cherry Cobbler
