Water Everywhere!


Hello!  With all the rain we have been having, I have not been able to work in my gardens therefore I decided to make cards. This card was inspired by this pattern paper from gcd Studio by Kathy Davis which brings to mind water gardens and water lilies.  I used a Water Lily stamp that I believe is Mark's Finest Papers but is missing the ID.   I used a sketch from Seize the Sketch and arranged 3 pattern papers as the background and added punched vines to the center. These were punched with Martha Stewart Vine Trim border punch from scraps of green cardstock.  The image was stamped with Memento Espresso Truffle ink on white cardstock and colored with Copics BG01,10,11, Y006, YG 63,99, G99 and Yellow Glaze pen and sponged with Memento Summer Sky ink.  A yellow dragonfly brad landed on the upper corner. Other supplies used were Nesties oval dies.  I will add a sentiment when I use the card.

Challenges:
Seize the Sketch: #20 shown above
Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge 211: Use a punch
Simon Wednesday Challenge: Die Crazy-used oval dies

I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
