At The Bottom Of The Garden

Butterfly Kisses will be blown your way.

As I was aiming for an ethereal look to this piece, I deliberately used less ink on my brayer before stamping Butterfly Kisses (available from The Stampsmith). Using Distress Inks I tinted the image then embellished with a variety of pressed flowers.  The gauzy fabric (garden fleece) diffused the painted and stamped canvas and enabled me to layer over the stamped quote without the words becoming obscured.

    LOL – you beat me to it on this one! Gorgeous Lynne. Love all those flowers round the base of her dress and your sentiment is delightful!

    Oooohhh Lynne, what an adorable image. Love how you’ve created the background. Garden fleece, eh! I’ll have to go visit my local garden centre.
