I love using text on my cards and adding resist to it is a plus. This text is an excerpt from "The Secret Garden", one of my favorite childhood books. This particular flower stamp stamps the background, which I white embossed to block out the text, letting it appear only in the flowers and leaves, which I then colored with markers. The resist also keeps my coloring in the lines, an added bonus for some of the tiny details. These hollyhocks are a sentimental favorite of mine, so everything about this card has meaning for me. Hope you like it, too, Julie!
Happy Blogversary, Julie! May you continue to inspire us for many more years!
