Country Life - My Garden Bench

Hi folks! Here's a card I made for Joanna Sheen using her new 'Country Life - My Garden' stamp set.
I used Papermania designer papers. I inked the edges with my Crimson Copper Brilliance ink pad. I used my Nestabilities to create the panel on the inside, the scalloped circle frame and also the mats for garden trowel and fork.
I painted the images with Koi watercolour paints, cut them out carefully (was quite tricky around the basket handle and the ribbons) I finished off the card with some die cut (Cuttlebug) corners and a tiny ribbon bow.
Have a great day
Ciao for now!

Lovely vintage looking card Sandra. Well done on all that very fiddly cutting out.

Totally gorgeous - every card you do for Joanna is a stunner. I play the spot Sandra's cards when Joanna does the videos now.
eeeeeeeeeek maybe I shouldn't have said that as all the DT cards are fab, but I must admit yours do appeal to me most.

Hi Sandra, this is stunningly beautiful! Those papers are gorgeous and the images are so different, beautifully soft colours compliment them so well, hugs Heidi xx

What a lovely card Sandra.

Now I am intrigued. I saw the same style demoed on C&C a week or so back, can't remember by whom though. I mean the backwards card attached to the front. So did you make a demo for them (whoever they were, wracking my brain and coming up with nothing here) or just use it to brilliant effect on this card! Whichever it is the end result is gorgeous.

Hi Sandra. I don't know what happened but I've popped over today and realised I've missed loads of posts. Not sure what happened there, but sorry to have been such a poor Blogger.
I've had a lovely catch, your cards as always are all gorgeous.
This bench is beautiful. I would have liked to have been sat on that today in the sunshine.
Hope all is OK with you and yours.
