Summertime Gardening!


Front


Inside


Challenges

Truly Scrumptious (36) - Sketch + How Does Your Garden Grow
Stamptacular (66) - Aperture Creations
Secret Crafter (91) - Apertures
Passion For Promarkers (59) - Give Us A Laugh

This one was rather a challenge as I very rarely attempt an aperture card where I have made the aperture myself. I cut the aperture using Nesties and framed it. The image has been coloured with Promarkers and the sentiment has been handwritten. The gardening tools are peel-offs which I have coloured with the Promarkers.

I thought that with all this beautiful hot weather that this was probably how a lot of gardening is being done...

Card Recipe

Stamps - Lili Of The Valley
Papers - My Mind's Eye
Peel-Offs - Stash

Thanks for looking.
