In the Garden

I'm home from a lovely couple of days visiting a friend who lives on a island off the coast of Vancouver - lots of walks with our dogs, some good food and wine, sitting by the fire, and catching up.  It was so relaxing.

Now trying to catch up with a couple of challenges, starting with SCS Free for All "In the Garden" - a project with something you would find in the garden.

I used a NBUS stamp from Penny Black - I've had it for ages (shame on me). It's got spring blossom, a bird, and a butterfly - all things I find in my garden.

Watercoloured, die cut with a stitched square, and popped up on fun foam - pretty basic!

I'll be back tomorrow with more.

Stamps - Penny Black
Ink - Ranger Archival Jet Black
Paper - watercolour paper, white cs
Size - 5" square
Accessories - Gansai watercolour paints, Lil Inker stitched square die, fun foam

  2. Susan it's gorgeous, I love your water colouring with this card

  3. So delicate, so pretty, love the stamp and how the butterfly just breaks through at the top x

  4. It won't be long before your garden looks like this, Susan! A beautiful watercolor!

  5. Wow, this is one beauty. The spring feeling is truly captured here. Your watercoloring is amazing and the finished card is just beautiful! xx

  6. I bet you'll be using this beautiful stamp again now, Susan! You have colored it like a stunning painting!! I'm jealous of your time on the island ~ we love that whole area!! Hugs, Darnell
