* AALL & Create: The Gardener



Today I am sharing  my GDT project for AALL & Create

I used the stamp set #424 The Gardener designed by Janet Klein.

Isn't she adorable! I love her posh wellies and little denim pinafore. She certainly manages to look a lot smarter than I do when I'm gardening!

The images were stamped with Memento ink so that they could be coloured with Copic markers. The background was made using a stencil, also from Janet's designs #96 Dandelion Field, and Distress Oxides with water to stamp the stencil - I love this easy technique.  Stamping was added to the background and edges, then the kraft trim was applied to ground my little gardener and her plant pots. I added some fabric flowers to finish off.

Here are my work in progress photos:
