The Craft Barn Weekly Challenge - Quintessentially English

Quintessentially English is this week's Craft Barn challenge. Decisions, decisions which of my stamps to use that would fulfil the brief. I finally plumped for an English cottage garden conjuring the fabulous sights, sounds and aromas of a warm summer day.

I stamped the image three times masking the previous image to ensure they overlapped and then hand-coloured the flowers (a marathon task!) with my newly acquired Spectrum Noir pencils. Followed by brushing some distress ink around the top and sides before adding the sentiment and 3D butterfly.

This is a lovely image from Crafty Individuals. Must have taken a long time to colour, but well worth it!
