In the Garden...

our theme over at Die Cut Divas for April.  And we have an amazing sponsor too...

Great prize too....

Now this challenge is right up my alley... I LOVE Hero Arts stamps, dies and stencils and add them with die cuts/embossing and it's a match made in heaven... and an awesome theme... think florals, birds, butterflies and whatever else the theme inspires you.

I chose to use an older stamp and die set 657773  Antique Flowers and Butterflies.  This time I only used the Dogwood stamp


I stamped onto some watercolour paper with distress inks and the used some water to move the colour around.  Then over-stamped in black in.  I used a Lil'Inkers die to cut it out.  Sentiment is another Hero Arts set.

Do hop over to the blog and see what the others have done... so fabulous work
