Tilda's Garden Blooms and Friends

Good evening all. I find it's hard to find time for crafting in the summer, too many outside chores to do... I am sure many of you feel the same way. Tonight I have a scene card to show you, hopefully you are not bored by another scene card from me. I made this card a few weeks ago and thought I will post it when it's closer to the summer or when the school is out.

This gatefold card measures about 6 3/4" (W) x 5 3/4" (H) when it's closed. I used 11 Magnolia stamps for this card. You are invited to visit Tilda's garden and her friends. Rufus the dog and birdie greet you at the gate.


Once you are inside the garden, Edwin, Tilda and her friends are all waiting for you to join in the fun.


The images were colored with Copic markers. I attached a strip of diecut grass in the foreground and added a couple of folds in the strip for a more 3D look.



I cut out some buntings/pennants and hand wrote "Have a sunny day" on the buntings.


I used cardstock from Stampin'Up, DP from Magnolia and Memory Box, dies from Magnolia (dragonflies and grass) and Memory Box (birdcage). I also used Martha Steward's punch to punch out the samll butterflies.

Well, one more thing. Thank you all for your generous comments on my previous posts and hope you enjoy this visit and have a sunny day tomorrow and everyday.

Hugs,
Katie

I will enter this card in the following challenges:

Hi
Surely they must take you hours to complete, the detail, the colouring of the stamped images but the effect on completion is remarkable, such impact.
Beautiful as always.
