Papertake Weekly Challenge ,,,, In the Garden :-)

We had loads of fabulous entries to Dawny's sketch but now it is time for a new challenge over on the Papertake Weekly Challenge :-) This week the theme is :


so loads of possibilities there !! ,, birds, trees, BBQ's, ,,,,

I am sure many of you have been mowing the lawns and weeding the flower beds in the last couple of weeks so your heads must be full of inspiration :-)

We are sponsored by the lovely Beckie at Lilac Lemon Designs so a lovely prize for one lucky entrant,, thanks Beckie xx

I made my card following Dawny's fab sketch on the Lili of the Valley Challenge :-)

I used this gorgeous Little Girls Tea Time stamp from LOTV,, cute eh ! :-) I coloured the image with copics and added Glossy accents to the teapot, cups and saucers. I used some teracotta coredinations that I embossed with a Tim Holtz burlap folder,, I thought it looked like tiles ! The flowery paper is from the Basic Grey Green at heart paper pack. I made the sky using a Hero Arts cloud stamp, stamped several times, masked then sprayed with copic ink using a copic air brush. The flower is from Hobbycraft and it does actually match the card perfectly IRL ,, seems the wrong colour on the piccy. The flowery border is a sticker that came with the paper pack ( I bought the 12x12 collection pack) I used a Martha Stewart Butterfly punch, a charm and a few gems !! The sentiment is also from a LOTV sentiment set.

Challenges :

Lili of the Valley ,,,, Sketch
