Hero Arts Wildflower Garden

It's Tuesday and that means it't time to head on over to the Papertake Weekly Challenge to see what's in store ! :-)

IN THE GARDEN 

I love this Hero Arts Wildflower Garden Cling Stamp and thought it would be perfect for the theme !


I coloured the stamp using some GORGEOUS Spectrum Aqua Markers, these markers are da Bomb !  I have some Marvy Le Plume and Memento Markers too, but these are definitely my most faves :-) 

For this card I used the Florals Set.

 I then splattered the whole panel with Studio Calico Shine and Dylusions White Linen, it doesn't show up well in the photo's but gives a lovely subtle effect IRL, you will just have to take my word for it ;-) 



I stamped onto Watercolour Paper and then used a water brush to blend the colours slightly. I made 2 cards using the same ink, just sprayed lightly with water before stamping, and I am sure I could have made at least another 2. The ink is still on the stamp so I will make another 2 and add different sentiments. I just didn't have the time to do them before today. 


We are sponsored by The Paper Nest Dolls so a fab prize on offer :-)
