Joy Amongst The Roses

Hello Everyone
I try to be organised and have a system when it comes to what I will post and if it is a time when I keep returning to the same stamp or set then I try to stagger the samples I share. However what can happen is that I then overlook the samples which is exactly what I have done with cards made using Oxford Impressions’ Jane’s Garden.
When I received the Gelli Plate from That’s Crafty I couldn’t stop playing with it and made some prints to use with the Jane’s Garden set. That’s quite a few weeks ago now and yet I haven’t shared any of the cards.
Oxford Impressions’ Jane’s Garden can be purchased directly from Oxford Impressions (Austen Gallery) or from That’s Crafty.
Let me start with the base of the card, a Gelli Print which has a lacy effect, no surprise !  I then over-stamped with the lovely rose stamp from Jane’s Garden.
DIGITAL CAMERAThis stamp is so finely detailed. I know I must use it as a focal for a project. DIGITAL CAMERAThe true colour representation are the other photographs, not the this one.  This is too washed out but nevermind!
DIGITAL CAMERAThis might well by my favourite Jane from the set. She has a lovely coyness to her and seems to be filled with joy.
I wouldn’t say the detail shows up but Jane, the flurry of butterflies and watering can were all stamped onto another Gelli print.
I do have a compulsion for using tags!
DIGITAL CAMERARoses in the garden nestled amongst a border of lace steeped in tea and coffee. DIGITAL CAMERAHere we have two butterflies carrying a bow and pearl to embellish the top of the card.DIGITAL CAMERAThe other two cards I will share another time.
Thank you for your visit to this post. I always appreciate your visits and  comments.

    Wow – you have created such a divine scene Lynne – totally transported me to another timezone! I reckon Jane has just spied some ‘goings on’ and is hurrying off to gossip! The background is superbly done – I love all the muted hues – we are paired with our colours today! Thanks so much Lynne for your lovely comments on my card too. Nicola x

    You strike me as very organized dear Lynne!
    This piece is so very lovely and I am extra impressed that you can even make vintage looking gelli monoprints…
    something happens to me when I monoprint and I end up using brighter colors than usual…
    I must challenge myself and try some toned down prints…
    thank you again for inspiring and delighting me!
