Chocolate Baroque's A spring Garden

Hello to you all, today I am sharing a card I have made using the fabulous Patchwork Landscape and Springtime Edges stamp sheets from Chocolate Baroque.


I created this card by stamping the main image and colouring with water colour pencils.
I then stamped the image onto some copy paper and cut out to make a mask.then using Faded jeans distress ink coloured the sky.
The Snowdrops from the Springtime Edges were stamped  across the bottom of the page and coloured in. This was then matted onto some white and black card and finished off with a sentiment and a couple of butterflies.xxx

What a lovely card Doreen. This is how I pictured ENGLAND to look when I was a child and my parent's told me about their home-land. I was quite surprised when at 12 years of age we went to London and I saw nothing of the sort.

This image did bring up some wonderful memories though. Beautiful image...coloured just perfectly. Love it.

Thanks for joining us this week at One Stitch at a Time. Good luck.

This is a delightful layout with the white of the snowdrops echoed by your focal image mat. It looks very striking against the black & I like the way those butterflies manage to lead the eye to both the sentiment & to the focal image above. The snowdrops provide a lovely foreground setting for the idyllic scene which looks as if it's about to be shattered by an impending storm.
