Birthday Garden GatePosted: April 13, 2023 Filed under: Echidna Studios, garden fence | Tags: Echidna Studios, Fabriano Watercolour Paper, Kuretake Zig clean color real brush markers, Penny Black stamps 2 Comments
This is the second card I’ve made with the Echidna Studios ‘garden fence’ set of digital stamps. On the first card the images were smaller to fit on an A2 card and the arrangement was a little different. These digital images are great fun to work with as they are not transparent so when I position each pot it masks what ever is behind it.
I printed the image on hot pressed watercolour paper then did all the colouring with zig clean color real brush pens. Those pens are juicy! I added only small dabs of ink to the foliage and flowers and blended it with a waterbrush. I blended blue and green between all the fence posts to make the white pop and added a line of grey as shadow.
The sentiment is from an old faithful Penny Black set, banner sentiments. The curve of the stamp fitted nicely over the curve of the gate. The finished card is 7¼” x 4⅛” which is not a standard size I know. I will either make a custom envelope or put it in a slightly larger one.
Most of my garden is out from under the snow now so not too long before I can be working with real pots not digital ones!

Wow Heather, what beautiful bright colours using your Zig pens, and this digital image is just so pretty created by your very talented daughter. x
What gorgeous coloring and how fun to play with digis that are not PNG’s. That’s great for no masking! Your beautiful painting and colors make this image just pop off the page!
