Thinking of a Cottage Garden

HI All!
i know.....second post today!!  If you are here and didn't see the earlier post about the color changes....scroll down - you won't want to miss it!!

I pulled out the scs sketch today and was able to play, a little bit.  I have so many sets that haven't even been inked yet....so sad!!  I need to ink 'em .....need to!  I love the hat image from Garden from the Heart set in the Occassions mini.  It sold me on the whole set, really....hehehe!!!  So i knew I wanted to start there....here is what I did:

I used up some scraps of cottcge wall designer series paper.  Hey!  maybe since we will be keeping rich razzleberry.....maybe this paper won't retire.....hopefully!!  It is so pretty!
The card base is rich razzleberry.  The sentiment is from teeny tiny wishes....no surprise there, huh?  lol!!  I punched it with the small oval punch and matted it with the large oval in old olive.  My hat image was stamped with balck staz on ink onto watercolor paper.   Wanna see a little closer????

Well...how did I do?  I used ink refills and an aquapainter to color it in.  The colors I used were: soft suede, certainly celery, old olive, perfect plum, rich razzleberry and the shading was done with sahara sand.  Don't you just love the little button detail???  It is from the playground collection of buttons and I tied it on with linen thread.  That panel was mounted with stampin' diemnsionals along with the sentiment.

I couldn't leave the inside out, right??

I stamped the hat with rich razzleberry stamped off two times before stamping it onto whisper white.

Share you love....you like?
