A Country Life - Summer Garden

Good morning folks,

Well I know I have been very quiet lately and this time it has nothing to do with Family illness, thank goodness. Last weekend our Broadband box broke beyond repair. It was the end of the world as we know it (there's a song title in there!) according to my teenage children. Luckily the provider stepped inand a new box was delivered. So the world was saved from the brink of destruction!!

Now back to crafting. Today sees the launch of a new range from Crafter's Companion. It is A Country Life from Morgan Fitzsimons. It is very different from the last range by this artist and the CD has some beautiful toppers and papers. For my card I have used one of the rubber stamps from the range called Summer Garden.
The style of this range is very soft so I decided to use my Spectrum Aquas to colour the image - 
  • scarlet, marigold, chestnut, evergreen and aquamarine

I stamped my image onto watercolour card and used a paintbrush to apply the colour.
The other ingredients used were - 
  • ivory centura pearl and pink core'dinations
  • flutterby butterfly embossing folder
  • Toinc layering circles
  • Die'sire create-a-card Beatrice
  • Die'sire essentials scalloped rectangles

One of the sentiments from the die set.

So why not join Fiona on Create and Craft TV. The show times 
are -

Thank you for stopping by
