Heart of the Garden and Butterfly Bouquet by Penny

Good morning peeps, I hope you are all keeping well and dry!  What's with all this rain?  My garden has gone from parched to swamp in such a short time!  
It's my last post of the month today and I've got a piece of home decor and a card to share with you.

Heart of the Garden.

For this Home Decor piece I have used stamps from the Filigree Trading hearts and Celebration Bouquet sets; Distress Inks, texture paint, chalk paint, black Versafine ink, clear EP, CB stencils  Seasonal Elements and Useful Leaves, a gold pen and Koh-I-Noor paints.  

I stamped and embossed the filigree heart image in black Versafine and clear EP three times onto white card then cut them out.  I painted them and added dots with a gold pen.  I did the same with the bouquet.

I took a canvas board and painted a background with chalk paint, then used stencils with DIs and texture paint to add some foliage and flowers.   I attached the hearts to the board then attached the bouquet on top.

Butterfly Bouquet.

This is a quick and pretty piece of artwork that would suit many occasions.  I have used stamps from the Celebration Bouquet and Happy Flowers Day sets; grey Versafine ink, alcohol pens and DIs.  

I took a piece of CB Luxury Smooth White Paper and stamped the bouquet in grey ink.  I coloured the image with pens and added a shadow line.  I then took a spare piece of the paper and stamped a butterfly in grey ink.  I coloured it with the pens then cut it out.  I matted and layered the focal panel onto a white base card, then I stamped a sentiment along the bottom of the card and added a couple of foliage stamps.

I really like this quick card, it is ideal for when you need a hand made card in a hurry!  

Thank you for dropping by today, I hope to see you next month when I'll be back with some more crafty fun.  

In the meantime take care everyone,
