Country Garden

DRU Challenge #143 – Spring Flowers

Using an old wooden block stamp by Stampendous I stamped the image. It was coloured using a combination of pencils and some shimmery watercolours. It also has a touch of glitter sparkle here and there. The die cut frames are from Paper Rose and is called Stitched rectangle frames. After I had die cut them I brushed some shabby shutter distress ink to take away the stark white. The smaller frame is several layers so there is a tiny bit of dimension to it. The image and the outer frame are flat. I had some left over pieces from an intricate border frame bought in Holland so I added those leaves to each bottom corner. Fussy cut the sentiment which is from GKD.

    1. I find it interesting to use a very old stamp because I can remember buying it and then not really knowing what to do with it. Its amazing to realize just how far I have come from when I started. Thanks Gayle.


  1. Before learning how to colour, or having die cutting available, I can remember yearning to be able to create something like this. 20 odd years of playing has given me many ideas of how to use some of my older stamps.
