#ShopYourCraftStash Serene Garden

Hello Everyone ~ Are you ready for another blast from the past with the #ShopYourCraftStash Serene Garden creation?

I ran a bunch of errands yesterday and mailed out my calendars to everyone.  Trying to keep busy while I wait on news about my sister.  I have everything I needed to do completed so tomorrow I can spend the day in my studio working on designing and creating.  I am working on designing some 8″ x 10″ collages that I am going to offer through the mail as some ladies asked me about it.  I did this when I was living in Maryland and we made 12″ x 12″  framed art but I thought I would mix it up a little by doing them 8″ x 10″ and have them fit in a shadow box frame.  That way we can add lots of little trinkets and bows  to them.

I went shopping in my stash again for today’s card.  I specifically went looking for something I could use my watercolor pencils on as I had not played with them in a while.  I had to have an open stamp that could be colored.  I decided to use the Serene Garden set.  I stamped the image using Memento Tuxedo black ink.  I could not find my set of watercolor pencils that are current so I used the set I had from several years ago.  I chose a yellow, orange, and a green.  The dark green reminds me of Old Olive, the brighter green was similar to Granny Apple Green,  the orange looks like Calypso Coral, and the yellow was Pineapple Punch.  I colored all the images then used a blender pen to spread the color around.   Once the image was colored I added some of the 1/8″ Pineapple Punch grosgrain ribbon at the top and attached a bow.  I needed a sentiment so I went looking at my sets and found a great one in the retired Petite Pairs set.  I stamped it using Memento Tuxedo black ink.  The panel was then added to a Calypso Coral card base and the #ShopYourCraftStash Serene Garden creation was complete.

This colorful card has a tropical feel because of the colors. Who would you send this #ShopYourCraftStash Serene Garden creation to?

Thanks for visiting me today and I hope I inspired you.  I am hoping to get a lot accomplished today in my studio.  If I can get a bunch of cards made then I can make some videos tomorrow.  Have a Super Saturday and what do you think of the tropical colors on the #ShopYourCraftShash Serene Garden creation?
