Ready to do some gardening…..?

Hello. I have a CAS card to share today, using an older Sizzix die set:

I searched the tags in the ‘Color My Life’ app for any of my products with ‘garden’. Quite a few came up – I use tags a lot – and this older Sizzix die set came up. I am sure many of us are preparing and planning our gardens at this time of year – what to plant and where – and as I was searching for our wheelbarrow a few days ago, this die set seemed to speak to me.

I used a selection of different coloured card stock for the pots and watering can, with a silver framed wheelbarrow. The sentiment if from Spellbinders.

I was going to attach the die cuts to the base card, but I felt it needed a little something behind it, so I ink blended some blue that was left on my blending brush, then ink blended again using a stencil for some darker areas.

Although there are layers to this card, I feel they are clean layers, and therefore give an overall clean effect.

I shall be entering the following challenges:

Addicted to CAS – CAS garden

Clean and Simple on Friday – CAS Spring

Simply Less Is More – anything goes CAS

  1. I love your interpretation of “garden”. It’s so perfect and original. Great idea to add a bit of blue detail behind the wheelbarrow. Thanks for joining us at Addicted to CAS.
