Garden Lace Scene By Florence

Hi everyone

I hope you are all enjoying the weekend.

Today I would like to share with you some cards made using the new Garden Lace Scene Stamp.  This is such a gorgeous image.  As you would expect from Chocolate Baroque stamps, the image stamps perfectly every time.  Lovely crisp lines and detail.




As this is such a beautiful image I decide to keep the first three cards simple in design with only the addition of sentiments from the Mackintosh Sentiments Rubber Stamp Set which go perfectly with this image.




I have just changed the colors of the ink I have used to stamp the image and the colors used to color the image in.




When I first looked at this stamp The Great Gatsby Sprang to mind.  The thought of elegant parties with guests dressed in their finery and sipping cocktails on the terrace resulted in the idea of combining the Garden Lace Scene image with one of the Fabulous Flapper Ladies.






These cards were easy to make.
I stamped my images with Archival Ink and colored them.
Card 1 and 2 I used ink and a damp paint brush to color the image.
Cards 3 and 4 I used water color crayons and a damp paint brush.
On card 4 I stamped the Flapper Lady onto a separate piece of white card, colored the image and attached it to the card using foam tabs.

Thank you for looking

  4. A superb progression of samples illustrating the beauty of a minimalist approach - the little scene is superbly complemented by Mackintosh's font. The deckle edging for the image is another super complement that enhances the whole design & I love your matting colours. Just noticed how the lacey edging of the scene is echoed by Mackintosh's 'o'. The flapper girl is indeed a super companion & I love your addition of the feather.

  5. Oh my, all beautiful. I really enjoyed seeing them done in a variety of colours--it adds to the inspiration as I have my eye on this stamp. The flapper girl is a cool combination with the image.

  8. These are all gorgeous Florence but I particularly like the third one with the lovely mix of colours and the fourth with the flapper, but how different they all look with their different levels of colouring. x

  13. These are all beautiful Florence and the Flapper Lady looks right at home! My personal favourite is the first one as it looks so delicate with just the touches of colour but they are all really delightful.
