Gardens & Meadows (By Tracy Thompson)


Hello and Happy New Year, this is my first post for this year, and I'm bringing you some creations I did for the December's shows.  We had some fabulous stamps to work with as you can see.  My first is using the stamp The Folk Art Garden, it is a very big and detailed stamp and fantastic to colour.  After I had stamped the image I coloured with Distress Inks, keeping the tones in Vintage shades.  I then stamped the image again, only colouring the butterflies and flowers.  I fussy cut them and decoupaged on to my image, I inked around the edge with Distress ink and then layered onto contrasting card.

For my second creation I used the Teeny Weeny Meadow stamps,  so I started this one by putting some colour down on to my card with Distress inks in blues, greens and browns.  I stamped my trees in Versafine Clair and as I did the main image I did the reflective image using a Gel Plate.  I mixed and blended my colours for the trees to give some dimension.  It just needed to be matted on some dark green card and it was done.

I will be back around the middle of the month to share some more of my creations from the shows.
Thank you for looking
Happy crafting

  1. Two stunningly beautiful cards Tracy. I love the vintage colours of the first one and your tree reflection just looks so tranquil x

  2. These are both beautiful Tracy with the prettily coloured and decoupaged flowers and butterflies, and then the atmospheric look of the second with the tenny ween meadow trees and a wonderful reflection in the foreground water, and so softly coloured too which looks great. x
