In The Garden

This month’s freebie digi from The East Wind is the beautiful Aurora Gardening.

The background is embossed with a Die’Sire ‘Clouds’ embossing folder. I added some Cyan Versacolour ink to one side of the folder before putting my card inside and embossing. This gave a pale blue colour to the background whilst leaving the embossed clouds white.

The brick work is a Joy Crafts die and the tools are a Marianne die tied with a bit of cotton cord. The grass is cut in two shades of green using an Xcut die.

I coloured the image with my Promarkers then cut around it. Finally I made a ‘blackboard’ from balck card, adding writing with a white gel pen. (For those of you who don’t know, Unky is the nickname of the lovely artist who drew this image).
