Garden fresh

Inspiration for today’s card came from a watercolour artist I saw on Instagram. Her name is Garima Srivastava and she paints loads of florals sometimes in cute little jars and vases. I saw one of her paintings then pulled out the new Penny Black ‘garden fresh’ clear set to create my own little trio.

I stamped on hot press watercolour paper with Papertrey soft stone ink, a pale grey that works well for no line watercolour. To paint inside the outline images I used a mix of distress inks and markers, sometimes picking up smooshed ink off my glass mat, other times inking the stamp with a marker to add some definition.

To finish the panel I stamped a sentiment from the new PB ‘ever thanks’ set in versafine clair morning mist ink then popped it up over the embossed mat made with one of my new embossing folders. (SU ‘scripty’). I’m looking forward to filling jars and jugs with flowers. Right now the daffodils are making a fine effort but a little too sparse to cut any for indoors.

    This is so fresh and crisp, Heather! Love the bright flowers and the vases, some which remind me of the antique crockery that I have.

    Incredible artwork on these flowers and vases! Your work on the glass is amazing, something I really had not succeeded with. Beautiful card, Heather!

    I love the three different receptacles to hold those pretty flowers Heather and just a simple sentiment to finish and love the way you popped it up over the embossed background white on white..perfect! x

    Heather, I am so in awe of your is hard to believe these are stamped.
    Thank you for being extremely creative in showing us what we can strive to achieve.
    ( for me, I can aspire but have long way to go.)
