Garden Girl by Debbie James


Hi everyone, hoping everyone is having a crafty week.

This week I really had to play with this stamp plate from Quirky Girl collection by Donna Gray.

I wanted an Oxide Ink background so I blended two colours. Squeezed Lemonade and Tumbled Glass and where they "met" I would get a hint of green.

I then stamped the girl and the flower onto separate piece of card, I stamped the large flower 3 times and I coloured all the images using the Spectrum Noir Aquablend pencils

Once I was happy with the colouring I cut all the images out but I don't have the patience to cut the little string holding the little house so I stamped just the top bit of the girl onto the background to show the string and I then placed the cut out girl over the image on the background card.

I did the same with the flowers and I used a fine liner pen to extend the stems where I needed to.  I drew around one side of the images with the black Aquablend pencil to add some emphasis and I stamped directly onto the card with the butterfly and the little flower.  I also stamped out the sentiments and matt and layered onto black card and placed around the picture.

I doodled around the edge of the picture and placed in my Pink Pig 8"x 8" journal with black pages.

I really hope to like this art work, it sheered me up on a rainy day.

Have a good week everyone.
