Down By the Garden Gate


Here is a card I made for the contest that was going on at Splitcoast for the last few weeks and when I saw this trellis (pictured below) I knew what I wanted to do. 
The gate stamp of mine is so old and I have had it for years.  I inked it up with Memento Grey ink and stamped it as the backdrop for the flowers.  Then I inked up the flowers by colouring them with Memento markers and sprayed with water before stamping onto my card front.  Isn't that sentiment wonderful, love that font.
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look.

CAS-ual Fridays- SHADES OF GREY
Little Red Wagon- YEARNING for SPRING

Supplies:  stamps-Rubbernecker, Unity, Stampers Anonymous/ Memento markers/ Memento ink
