For my card today I just had to share with you a design using the new 'Plant a Garden' stamp set:

As its coming into Spring in New Zealand I'm flat out each day battling all the growing plants and weeds that are coming out of hibernation. And with all the sunshine and rain we've been having, they are going rather crazy. Its tiring work but I love it and definitely consider myself having a 'superpower'!!

I started by stamping all the images with Gina K Amalgam Black ink on white CS, colouring with Altenew Artist Markers and fussy cutting out. I wanted a background with some type of foliage, so used the 'Leafy Mandala' stencil, blending Distress Ink 'Mowed Lawn' in the middle and 'Twisted Citron' towards the leaf tips.

All I had to do then was adhere the images in place and stamp the sentiment (from the same stamp set) with Versafine Onyx ink. I then glued on some Seafoam pearls from Studio Katia for a hint of shine.

Don't forget to leave a comment for a chance to win one of the new stamp sets (your choice) and links to all the other Design Team blogs are on the Funky Fossil Design Blog. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and supporting a small craft business, I know Sarah appreciates you all and I can't wait to share more of her products with you.

Take care
