For a Gardener


I've had this ODBD image for a while and finally inked it up to make a card. I colored it with Copics and some silver and gold metallic paint pens, then die cut it along with the other panels with Lil Inker stitched rectangles. I pulled a snippet of polka dot dsp out and matted with it, as well as 2 different green cardstocks. The sentiment from MFP was heat embossed with white ep on black and I called this one done!

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope your garden continues to thrive and grow!

What a unique stamp! I like the way you colored the metal in those two tones, very realistic. The sentiment is sweet for any gardener!

Beautiful card, Carol! That image is wonderful and I love the sentiment you used with it! Those stitched panels dress this up nicely! Great card! TFS and Happy Monday! Boo on the cloudy rainy skies....I have been loving the sunshine the last few days!

You keep telling me you have no mojo, yet you keep pulling these fantastic cards out of your back pocket! Dang, this is so pretty!

Super card, Carol. I love the beautifully coloured image. It's not the sort of day for gardening here. It hasn't stopped raining and the wind has been howling all day - and it's supposed to be summer! xx

I love your colouring on this super image and the various green matting panels are a perfect background. A great sentiment too.

What a fun card! Love those stitched dies. I now have quite a long wish list at Lil Inker now, have yet to hit enter.
