A Walk in the Park

Hello! This is my second post for today, so please scroll down after viewing this one, if you would care to view my other one! For this post, I continue to work with the brand new release by Artistic Outpost called Flower Market. A timely release indeed, with spring upon us. I chose to keep to just a few colors on my card to lend a 40s vintage feel. Images from the Flower Market plate were stamped with Black StazOn over the red card base. The butterfly catcher was stamped onto cream card stock and bunches of flowers were stamped continuously around her to create a field of flowers. Some of the flowers were watercolored in with Festive Berries Distress Ink and covered with Clear Glaze. The tiny butterflies were stamped on scrap red card stock, trimmed and also covered with a Clear Glaze and mounted with dimensional foam blocks. A single poppy was added using a similar treatment. Finishing touches include a bit of ribbon tape, pearls and some vintage black seam binding and a vintage button. Hoping you are enjoying all the new releases over at Artistic Outpost! Enjoy the day! Yvonne

What with life and what with problems trying to comment I have fallen behind with leaving a comment on your art but here I am trying once again.
Glorious colours and it is a beautiful stamp.
