Garden Thoughts

I made this card a couple of weeks ago, practicing with my Blendabilities markers.  One of the flowers from Secret Garden was used.


This is such a beautiful flower, I'm sad that Stampin' Up! decided to retire it after just one year in the catalogue.  It was wonderful to color with my trio of Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities.  These markers create amazing depth of color.


The leaves are from Peaceful Petals.  It was a bit trickier to blend effectively on the leaves, with a smaller "canvas", if you will.  Both the flower and the leaves were fussy cut with Paper Snips.


Some gorgeous retired lace from Artisan Embellishments was layered between the designer paper and the flower.  I still have a bit that I stashed away to be used sparingly, and I thought it would look lovely with this vintage look card.

Thank you for visiting, and I would love to hear from you if you have a moment to leave a comment.  I would love to hear if you have discovered any great techniques for using the Blendabilities.

Hugs,

Stef
