TCP Tuesday #338 Challenge

The TCP Tuesday challenge at The Cat's Pajamas is going strong. The theme this month is How Does Your Garden Grow?

I have two cards today that look remarkably alike. I created the first one with the watering can, decided I didn't like the watering can on it so I created another without it. But then after looking again I decided the watering can looked ok. The hubster even said that he liked it the best. Not that i am going by his taste. If I did we would have a red plaid couch, an orange chair and a purple ottoman sitting all in front of a TV the size of Connecticut. 

I stamped the solid flower image from the Sketchy Flowers set three times along the edges of Neenah cardstock rectangle using pale peony ink and the outline leaves in black. I colored the leaves and the added more color to the flower petals with Copic Markers, then offset stamped over the solid flower with the outline stamp. I masked one of the flowers and stamped the watering can image from the What's Up Gnomie? set. After coloring the image, I stamped the sentiment from the Simply Stacked Sentiments set. Lastly I stamped an image from the Watercolor Basics all around the flowers and leaves. The image panel was attached to the card base with a layer of craft foam. 

For second version, I essentially did the same thing adding a few more leaves, eliminating the watering can image and moving the sentiment down.

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamps, Neenah and PTI cs, MFT and PTI ink, Copic Markers
Copics: YG01, YG13, YG23, R20, R22

  2. Nancy! Of course, I love them both ... but what can go wrong with these lovely blooms? Or to say 'thinking of you'? Lovely.

  3. Both of these are brilliant, Nancy! You are one of the queens of CAS.
