I created a 3-D wood panel (fence) for the white cardbase by brayering a gray color on the folder, dry embossing, and then lightly dragging a darker gray on the raised parts of the panel. Then I adhered the panel to the white cardbase. Next, I die cut the garden flowers, stenciled and stamped the images. I added a bit of colored pencil for shading, some Glossy Accents on small flowers, some white gel for the stamens on large flowers, some yellow Viva pearl pen for medium sized flowers. This die cut was then popped up with foam adhesive. The butterflies and bees were stamped and fussy cut from some bits and pieces of yellow cardstock. I added a bit of WoS to the bees wings. The sentiment was stamped with pigment ink and embossed with white e.p. on a black die cut banner.
Thanks so much for taking a look!

This looked so stunning that I had to read your description to see that you had actually stamped and cut these, they are wonderful! Loving the colors and the woodgrained background is the perfect choice for the focal grouping to really stand out, yet the colors are so soft and beautiful. What a glorious nature scene with the beautiful butterflies, truly stunning! I favorited this and I agree with my fellow member above, this card does really stand out in the gallery for sure!!!
