Todays make is an ATC with envelope for a swap, the theme is hearts and flowers. firstly I stamped a verse from www.oakhousestudio.com this is a beautiful verse "English Summer Garden" I distressed the edges to age the card with various colours including black. I used a string of hearts stamp on the top left corner and a stamp that said flowers on the bottom right corner.my grasses stamp I inked in green was an " Inkwell"stamp ~ clearly the best~ then onto the grasses I stamped tiny flowers in orange red and yellow then I used versamark and clear embossing powder to look like varnish (much less mess this way).
my tiny flowers are from an EK punch added tiny gems. the top heart is half of a butterfly Stampin Up punch I added other punched hearts to make a trail and added 2 hearts / 1 red gems the tiny butterflies are a Tonic " butterflies pattern paper" punch . then my lovely little ladybird finished it off. My envelope was made with Stampin Up two sided papers to this I added a red Tim Holtz heart from the mini hearts Movers and Shapers die.
