Hello hoppers! You should have just come from Debbie Seyer's blog - I'm sure she dazzled you! I'm the last stop on this hop - so if you missed it, go back and start at the beginning.

For my card I used the Gate Stamp. I colored my fence and gate using copics, and then painted it with Rock Candy Crackle paint, let it dry, then rubbed the entire thing with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. I love how this made it look like a worn garden gate. This stamp set also came with the Secret Garden Sign, as well as the grasses that I stamped on the background. I added Flower Soft for my flowers and grass using Peony Pink, Meadow, Delphinium Blue , Ocean and Pine.
The paper is from Webster's Pages, and was the perfect backdrop for my secret garden.

WOW!!! That is really beautiful - to start with I wasn't sure if it was a card - could put it in one of those deep frames and hang it on the wall! Love the flowers poking out behind the fence!
