cottage path

The mood board at JUG’s, features gardens and pastel colours and I remembered this old wooden block stamp that I thought would be perfect for it. Stamp is by Stampendous and is called Cottage Path, so I titled my post the same. The idea also fits the Paper Dragonfly challenge too.

The sentiment and dragonfly are from a Catherine Pooler set that are perfect for this garden card. I fussy cut both as the sentiment is quite big.

I am so used to using my Misti and clear stamps that it took 2 tries to get a good image. I used Hickory Smoke so I wouldn’t have harsh lines and added a bit of clear embossing so I could watercolour it. All coloured with watercolour pencils keeping it very soft looking. Perhaps I should have used Hickory Smoke for the sentiment so it would be softer, but it is too late to change it now.

Thanks for popping in and for any comments too.
