At last week’s Card & Cuppa Class I used a stamp set that I’ve only recently purchased, Serene Garden.
I’d been looking for another stamp set that is good for colouring and this fit the bill perfectly.
The two corner pieces stamped in Old Olive create a lovely frame. Using Watercolor Pencils, the leaves are coloured. I then stamped the flowers and butterfly in Smoky Slate onto a separate piece and again coloured. Blender Pens soften the colouring of these.
Although there is a matching set of framelits for this set, as I don’t use the Big Shot at Card & Cuppa classes, these were cut out by hand.
The sentiment is from the ever versatile Happy Birthday Gorgeous Stamp Set cut out with the Pretty Label Punch. Another shape is cut out to create a backing layer for the sentiment. This is set on top of a length of co-ordinating ribbon.
As the attendees could use any colour for their flowers and butterflies, I chose a Thick Whisper White base card to co-ordinate with all of their projects.
The coloured flowers and butterfly are then added to the project using Dimensionals to give a layered effect. This design will be perfect in a wide range of colours and different sentiments.
There are another four stamps in the set and I can see me using Serene Garden quite a lot in the future.
