Garden Bouquet

A good morning to you!  It's a beautiful sunny day and I can hear the birds chirping.  All my flowers, bushes and trees are starting to bloom and my koi are happily swimming around their pond.  Such a beautiful season!  Today,  I am showcasing my DT card made with Conie Fong's gorgeous "Garden Bouquet" image, found here:

I wanted to create something different and not include flowers since this image already has such glorious flowers.  I decided to make a background for it and so I fussy cut it. I thought a fence would be perfect but since I didn't have a large fence die, I used Stampin' Up's "Hardwood" clear mount stamp
 I coloured it up, cut the individual pieces and inked them.  I remember seeing this done a while ago on Pinterest and thought I would try it too.  Finally, I raised the image with 3-D dots.

Here is a close-up:

I used a combination of Copic markers and FC Polychromos pencils. The larger butterflies and grass are dies by Cheery Lynn and the tiny butterflies are by Marianne Creatables.  Swarovski crystals are from my stash.  I hope you have a lovely day!  Lori P xx
