Secret Garden


Secret Garden is one of the new stamp sets revealed this month from Sparkle N Sprinkle.  I started out by stamping the image and sentiment onto watercolor paper using Jet Black StazOn ink.  Then I used Nuance powders to watercolor the image.  Silver Sonic velvet glitter was added to the lock and key and Sparkling Snow glitter was added to the flower centers.


The background was created by dry embossing a piece of white cardstock with a Sue Wilson Designs embossing folder (Climbing Vines).  Next I covered the surface with VersaMark, then White Spark embossing powder, and heat set it.  The ivy vines are die cuts from the Sue Wilson Designs Trailing Ivy die set.

I am entering this in the Little Tangles Challenge Blog: watercolor

Such beautiful soft, cheerful colors in her dress, Anne, and the glittery background with EP is lovely! All the softness is popped by those wonderful greenery (such pretty colors and textures!). Great use of the purple dotted CS, too! hugs, de
