A Scene in the Garden

In the current Mini catalogue there's a very sweet set called 'Scene in the Garden'. I wasn't going to get it until nearer the autumn but I kept looking and I eventually caved. It's a '2 step' stamp set which means you can use the images to create a scene, which is what I've done on the following cards.I've used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to get the precise placement of each image. It's an invaluable tool and I really don't know how I ever managed without it - very clever and so easy to use. If you want to know what it looks like or how it works have a look on YouTube, you'll find some great tutorials over there. I like to add a small image on the inside of all my cards for an added touch. On these I did the wellies... aren't they cute! I've stamped onto watercolour paper using Stazon and then coloured with the Earth Elements Marker Pens and an aqua painter. Watercolouring is so easy - I love the fact it doesn't have to be perfect. I'm off on a day trip to Leeson House tomorrow with Jake and all the Reception children from school. The weather's forecast to be wet with thunder storms so I'm off to dig out MY wellies and rain coat now! I hope they've got it wrong.... See ya soon, Jo :) Recipe: Stamps - Scene in a Garden/Best Yet Earth Elements Marker Pens Holiday Treasures & ~Spiced Cider DSP Linen Thread Vintage Brads Chocolate Chip & Very Vanilla c/s
