Tend a Garden

This week the Stampendous DT are sharing projects using the Stampendous stamps and Wee Scapes materials. 

My project today starts from an old hinged tin: 


I covered the entire tin with Wee Scapes  Grass Mat which is a roll of paper with the moss/grass texture.  Very fun and could be used on the bottom half of a card or die cut.  I stamped the beautiful Stampendous Spring Bouquet  using black ink on white cardstock and colored using my STAEDTLER Karat Aquarell watercolor pencils.  I added a touch of the Wee Scapes Foliage Clusters around the edges with the Stampendous Bronze Glitter.  The sentiment (Thoughtful Wishes)  was stamped on vellum and torn to add to the edges.  The butterflies are colored with glimmer mist.

The inside of the tin continues the scene but I added a touch of whimsy on my butterflies: 

I coated my white male figures with a coat of ultra fine glitter and attached them to my butterflies.

Thanks for stopping by!
