A Little Gardener

STAMPS: Rare Image Rubber Stamps GARDEN sheet

INKS: Distress Brushed Corduroy and Aged Mahogany, Staz-On Jet Black

SUPPLIES: Lyra watercolor crayons, wet paintbrush, flower punches, Stampin' Up! Snowflake punch, brayer, mesh, white acrylic paint, brass label holder, off-white brads, jute twine, pop-dots, dry embossing tool

SKETCH: SplitCoastStampers SC211

TECHNIQUE: Technique Junkies Painted Mesh

NOTES: I didn't have the right colored flowers so I punched a few flowers, stamped them, edged them with a sponge, flipped them over and embossed them with an embossing tool, then pop-dotted a couple ~ the main image was stamped 3 times, then the boy and then the watercan were trimmed out and layered ~ the image was colored using a wet paintbrush and Lyra watercolor crayons ~ the reddish panels were direct to paper ~ the bkgd tan cs is stamped with the Garden quote, then I did the Painted Mesh over it

Thanks for stopping by! ~Nancy :o)
