The May challenge by The Artistic Stamper (see right for link) is on the theme of the garden. I decided to make two items: a card and a gothic arch. For the card I used a lovely agapanthus stamp by Stampendous which was inked and then spritzed lightly with water before stamping onto watercolour paper, and then overstamped with the quote by PSX. The arch has a background created with various dye inks and then stamped with Laura Ashley stamps and embossed in gold. The garden gate image is by Paper Whimsy, the winged girl is a Tim Holtz stamp. I stamped a tiny quote onto the front of the gate but it does not show up very well in the scan - it reads 'Friends are flowers in the garden of life'.
