Garden Bouquet, take 2


This time I started with watercolor paper and stamped the image after "painting" it with markers and spritzing it with pearlized water.  After die-cutting it with a scalloped circle,  it was lifted above a background of 4 panels, each dry embossed with a different pattern, and separated with some lace.  The butterflies are stamped on 2 pieces of polished stone papers that I had in my scrapbasket, adding wire antennae.  I finished with a PTI sentiment that I trimmed to fit in the corner.  This will be my second entry into The Shabby Tea Room's challenge to use embossing.


Supplies:  HA CG172 Garden Bouquet, CL383 Antique Engravings, PTI Vintage Picnic Sentiments, watercolor paper, coral, blue, and green cardstocks, embossing folders: Cuttlebug Textile and Victoria, Sizzix Large Flowers and Dots, Marvy brush markers, versafine onyx black ink, lace, black wire for antennae

How very, very pretty! I just love your stamping technique here, and those butterflies are beautiful. Love the wire antennae you added. I also really like how you trimmed the sentiment in the bottom corner, and the embossed panels are fabulous. Thanks for playing with us again in the Tea Room.
