Garden Grid Card

There's not long to wait now until Barbara is back on TV and I will be able to share my new samples. Until then I have one final card from the German shows.

It's a grid card that I made with the garden stamps and German words. Each section is masked off and inked to create the grid. As I hadn't used many stamps around the edge like your normally would, I added a wiggly black line as well.

The colours I used were Peeled Paint and Shabby Shutters Distress Ink. They look quite different but looking at it now I don't really think the contrast is great enough. Peeled Paint and Bundled Sage might have been better. 

I had to have a go at Sazzle's stacking pots. It had me swearing a bit as there's lots of masking involved and it's not that easy. I think next time my pots will be quite happy on their own!

In case you don't speak German, the phrases are "A flower greeting", "In the garden is always beauty and work", and "Weeds for sale - Pick your own". I paired each one with an appropriate image.

A piece of co-ordinating K & Co. paper adds a bit of pattern to the background and finishes it off.
