Botanical Inspired

Botanical For You Full View I had some time with my family this past week to visit Dallas Blooms at our arboretum.  So beautiful to look at and enjoy with the other million people that were there during spring break!  *smile*  The flowers were all in bloom, but all the herbs were looking pretty sad.  Not sure when their blooming time is…but this card depicts the beautiful herbs at their peak. 

My card was inspired by this Pin at Pinterest as well as the Technique “crop your stamped image” at Splitcoaststampers. I figured I better start using what I’ve saved at Pinterest.  I don’t want to be just a collector.  *smile*

Of special interest, I added some concord crush ruler-lined frames around each of the cropped images.  I like it!

Stamps: Herb Expressions, You’re a GemBontanical For You Close Up
Paper: Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla
Ink: Old Olive, Crumb Cake, Stampin’ UP! Markers (Pear Pizzazz, Wisteria Wonder, Concord Crush)
Accessories: Gemstones, Sponge
Tools: Ruler
Technique(s): sponging

Thanks for stopping by!  Enjoy!
