In the Garden

Playing in the garden today with the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoaststampers. We visited a Pinterest Board all about Napkins. My friends would say "she is in her element" with that Board. I love table settings/decorations and napkins! I picked two different Pinterest pictures for my inspiration. First this napkin which is so cool, and this spring table setting which I love. For my card, I wanted to lighten the background from the picture and did not have the proper ink so I made a spritzer bottle with a small amount of watercolour paint and did the stencil spritzing technique. I then stamped my flower base in ripe persimmon, added the stems in mowed lawn and stamped the flower petals with embossing ink and white embossing powder. I sponged on the ripe persimmon, added yellow marker to the centres and topped with yellow glitter markers. I styled the flowers slightly before adding to my card base, which I matted in the lime green. A sentiment, a few sequins and a yellow pearl finished my card. I really like the results and hope you do as well. Thanks for looking today!
