The Walled Garden (by Julie)


Hello there, thanks for popping in. Today I have two cards to show you that I have made with the new single, cling stamps.


My first card is made with the Walled Garden, cling stamp. This is going to be one of my favourite stamps as I just love this scene as it makes me imagine what could be through the beautiful, brick archway.
I decided to keep it simple to really showcase the stamp design so I have just stamped with Onyx Black Versafine and  water-coloured, before mounting onto green card.


For my second card I decided to echo the brick design from the stamped image into the background, so I sponged some Barn Door and Hickory Smoke Distress ink through a brick wall stencil. I over-stamped the stencil with the little bonus foliage stamp using Onyx Black Versafine.
The main image is the Another Brick In the Walled Garden, cling stamp, which I have water-coloured. I have again used the bonus stamp to add interest to the wall by sponging red acrylic paint onto the stamp before applying it to the stamped wall.
To finish off I have added Crystal Stickles to highlight the design.

Many thanks for stopping by.

  5. Two wonderful cards Julie using these two scenic stamps. The first is understated and so elegant and I love the stencilled brickwork in the background on the second, and both beautifully coloured. x
