A Good Garden Always Has Weeds

Here's another couple of things I've made with my Digi Image from Shirleys2Girls. I coloured the image on the card with watercolour pencils, but used chalks for the background. The flower stamps on the card are Botanicals from Craftwork Cards. The DP is from Stamp Attic, as are the Prima flowers, I think the grosgrain ribbon is from a sewing shop.

The ATC is a failed attempt to strengthen the colours, the background started off with an apricot watercolour pen, which ended up a harsh shade of orange. So... I overcoloured with mauve and rescued it with an earthy brown colour :). The image uses watercolour pens and is cut apart from its sentiment. The background is glimmer misted paper stamped with tapestry stamps. It's quite fun but the colours overall aren't quite right...


  1. These are lovely Anne. As a gardener I have to agree with the sentiment completely.


  2. Such a neat card, love the saying!

  3. Isn't it wonderful when you can 'rescue' something and turn it into something else.

    Love the sentiment - says I, looking out onto some weeds in the lawn

  4. Ah I think it's just fine. We are our own worse critics aren't we.

  5. These are lovely! Great sentiment, too. :)
