Our Floral theme continues at Make My Monday, and this week we want to see Wild Grasses and Flowers.
I had several goes at this with various inks and did not like the effect, so this is my final version, with a background using PanPastels. I do love working with this - the colours are so soft and pretty. I tried to get the idea of the sun setting, but did not want the work to be too dark.
The grasses are all stamped in Versafine Ink, and are a mixture of stamps - Tim Holtz, Hero Arts, Lavinia Stamps, and the birds and butterfly from Tim Holtz Visual Artistry series, which I find useful when wanting the small stamps in his range, but smaller. I have edged around the whole thing with black Promarker rather than use a black card.
The card base has been coloured with Pan Pastels as well, and then grasses have been stamped in Distress Inks around the edge.
Please do pop across to the challenge there are some beautiful pieces of work from the team to delight and inspire you.
I am entering this into the following challenges:
Pan Pastels - pastel colours
Craft a Scene - Spring flowers - thistles and cow parsley are spring flowers!
One Stitch at a Time - Anything Goes
Stamptacular Sunday - In the Garden
Hybrid Chick - Flowers
Stamp, Scrap and Doodle - Flowers
Card Makin' Mamas - May Flowers
