Esther's Garden!

Good morning!  Sherry here with you today and I have a 5x7 layered card to share with you.

The background was created first using the Wrinkle-Free Distress Technique, watercolor paper, along with Tumbled Glass and Bundled Sage Distress Ink.  Once dry, the flowers were stamped and embossed with gold embossing powder.

Before water coloring the flowers, they were masked off and TCW Mini Specimen Stencil was taped to the front and the background was misted with Dylusions White Linen Ink Spray.

The flowers were water colored with Shaded Lilac and Dusty Concord Distress Inks.  The sentiment is from an older set from Darcie’s - Take Wing and was stamped in Watering Can Archival.  The front panel was finished by sponging Antique Linen around the edges, which really brought out some of the background stenciling.

The ribbon was some I had in my ribbon jar that was already dyed, which I’m thinking is Shaded Lilac.

Thanks for stopping by and joining me today!

Beautiful card. Love how the white linen added the stencil marks, yet not too boldly. The flowers are gorgeous (must dig out my gold embossing powder) and the die cut frame is awesome. Gorgeous!!
