My Fair Garden by Alison Hall


Hello crafters! I used some lovely new PaperArtsy Sara Naumann stamps, & pretty new Fresco Paint colours on a card this week. I hope it inspires you.



PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Acrylic Paint - Snowflake, Blue Oyster, China, Wisteria, Purple Rain, Guacamole
Ranger Archival Ink - Jet Black, Deep Purple
Blue Button
Thin String
Heat Gun


1. Use the brayer to randomly apply blue and purple Fresco paints to white card, then finish off with a light layer of Snowflake Fresco on the top. The Snowflake layer makes it easier for stamping on.

2. Use black ink to stamp three of the larger flowers from ESN14, then use a heat gun to set the ink. Cut out the three flowers.

3. Paint another piece of card with Guacamole, then stamp the large flower with black ink. Heat set, then cut out individual petals to use as the leaves.

4. Using Glossy Accents, layer up the three flowers. Thread the button with string, tie into a bow, then glue to the flower centre.

5. On a 6x4 inch card blank, use China Fresco to stamp the floral names down the left side. Edge the left edge of the card with Deep Purple Archival Ink.

6. Glue the layered flower in place on the card, then glue in the leaves as shown.

7. Use the Deep Purple ink to stamp the phrase on white card, cut out, then sponge the edges with China Fresco. Glue the sentiment in the bottom right corner.


Until next week,
