Today I'm joining in on the Inspiration Challenge over at Splitcoaststampers. Geni is our guest hostess today and she chose a wallpaper web site for our inspiration - Total Wall Covering.
I was inspired by this border paper - Cottage Garden Border
I die cut the watering can out of matboard and embossed it using Tree Branch Ink and Watering Can embossing powder. The flowers are die cut using PTI Button Dies. I tied twine through the button holes to give a little texture.
I made the background using Zig watercolor brush pens - drawing over the area with the brush pens - then going over it with a waterbrush. I stenciled the leaves and grass and added the sentiment after the background was dry.
I'll be sending this card to my sister who is going through some difficult times right now.
