Garden Tools

Hi there!

It's my day to post on the Technique Junkies Design blog.  I have two cards to share today, just in time for the planting season! Things are beginning to pop out of the ground and bloom, here in Southeast Missouri. What fun this stamp was to create with!   

For the first card, the background was spritzed with Chestnut Mare Shimmering Bliss, over top of 'Brick Wall', A Colorful Life Stencil'. I adhered the brick panel to a card base, and set it aside to dry. Next, S902 'Garden Tools' was stamped onto white cardstock, colored with Copics, distressed with Ink Blending Brushes and a variety of Distress Oxide Inks, and a circle was cut out of the panel. One of the garden tools, and the hose were also fussy cut from what was left over after the circle was die cut. The sentiment was stamped onto a piece of cardstock, the same as the base color, and was spritzed with Chestnut Mare Shimmering Bliss. The circle, tools, and sentiment were then adhered to the card base. This will be fun to send to a gardener that we know!

Next up is another card made with S902 'Garden Tools'. The image was stamped, colored with Copics, and the background was added with A Colorful Life Designs Stencil 'Grunge Dots'. The panel was then distressed with Distress Oxide Ink and Ink Blending Brushes

The sentiment on the inside is from SS134 'In the Garden'.  
Here is the inside of the second card:

I love both your cards, especially that inside sentiment. Life is definitely too short to have clean fingernails! I plan on working in my flowers very soon (we're a bit behind southern Missouri). I also need to get a bunch of cards made, so thanks for the inspiration.
