Garden Treasures

Happy Tuesday!

I’m back with another post for the Crafts-U-Love design team.

All of us are using the same set this month – the beautiful Garden Treasures set by Julie Hickey.

I shared the first card I made with this set on 15 October. As usual, links to my supplies are at the end of this post.



This week, I made two cards using the gorgeous set.

My first card was very quick to create – I stamped the images and sentiments using distress oxide inks – these inks are just so stunning on dark cardstock!

To finish off the card, I added a few dots with a white pencil.



For my second card, I used distress markers and water on watercolour cardstock. I started by smooshing some blue and green ink onto the card base to create the background.

Then I applied ink from the markers to the stamps, spritzed the stamps with the water and stamped to create softer images. Once I’d created a bouquet that I was happy with, I applied a light green marker to a few leaf images to create images that wouldn’t detract from the bold flowers. I added a sentiment stamped with distress oxide ink and cut it out using a die from the Marianne Designs Rosettes & Labels Collectables set.

Thanks for stopping by!
