In the Meadow....

AudreyPettit PPRS God'sGardenCard 
Hi everyone, it's Audrey again, back today with another fun card to share with you. This time, I combined two of my favorite PPRS clear sets to create a happy meadow scene that's perfect for spring. One of my favorite parts of working with stamps is fact that you can combine the individual images in so many different ways to create tons of unique focal points, like this peaceful garden scene. I am smitten with the little wooden fence image from The Four Seasons Clear Stamp Set. It always makes me think of roaming through pastures on a beautiful spring day. Just the mood I was going for on my card today.

To create my scene, I began by stamping the fence image in dark brown ink onto a panel of white cardstock. Colored pencils and chalk pastels add in layers of color for my green fields and blue sky. I stamped the beautiful verse from The Four Seasons set onto cream cardstock, edged in pastels, for a bit of a contrast. Stitched the panel onto my pretty patterned paper card base.

The butterflies, from the Scalloped Oval 4- Floral Clear Stamp Set, were stamped onto watercolor paper in dark brown ink, water-colored and fussy cut before being adhered to the card base. By adding just a small dot of adhesive in the center of the butterfly, the wings can by lightly bent up to give a bit of extra depth and dimension. Finally, the card was finished with a few of my favorite trims. Thanks so much for stopping by! I'll be back next week for one last guest designer project here on the Prickley Pear blog. Hope to see you all then!
