A blog devoted to the cards I make in my tiny upstairs space. When my sister stays there, she calls it an "artist's garret". I'm not an artist, but am an enthusiastic cardmaker - hence the title "Cardmaker's Garret".
As well as being a card-maker, I love gardening and grow flowers in my perennial borders and in pots on my patio. So I was thrilled when I learned that there is a new card challenge devoted to flowers - The Flower Challenge.
I made a smooshed background (see this video by Loll Thompson on how to smoosh a background) using various pink and green Distress inks on watercolour paper, then stamped the flower in Archival ink. I watercoloured it using the same inks.
