The challenge at Allsorts this week is to to get some inspiration from a garden or park and let that show in your work.
Gardens mean flowers to me and if I go to a park I love to see all the wonderful beds full of beautiful plants.
I've used a stamp by Penny Black 4035K 'letters and flowers'. I love this stamp but sometimes feel a bit limited by it as it is a silhouette stamp, so I decided to stamp the image in a light colour so that I could watercolour over it using Derwent Graphitint pencils. I chose memento "London Fog" ink stamped onto watercolour card and I'm really pleased with the results. I've kept the card simple again to highlight the image. The little butterflies are the small ones from a Martha stewart Butterfly trio punch.
I hope you are enoying the weekend.
Hugs, Clare xx
