Happy Sunday! It's time for a new theme at Penny Black and More challenge for the month of June we have selected the them of In the Garden. A nice and easy one I think, with so many options.
There are several wonderful prizes to win again this month, so hopefully you can join us for your chance to win one of them. This is a month long challenge, so there should be plenty of time, and don't forget you may use any brand of stamps, just no digi stamps.
I started out by inking a piece of Bristol Vellum paper. I don't remember if I used distress ink or my Zig markers but basically I just applied a water soluble ink on a craft mat, spritzed with plenty of water and then patted the paper onto the craft mat. This short video by Loll explains the simple technique really well. I used the retired "Canvas" background stamp by Stampin Up to add more interest to the background. The pretty floral stamp is by Penny Black (Delicate Florals) stamped with Versafine Onyx ink and then colored with Zig Clean Color real brush pens. I decided to add some torn designer paper corners to two of the corners and a little button with jute twine finishes off this easy to make card. The sentiment is from my favorite Birthday sentiment set by Penny Black: Sprinkles and Smiles.
I am also sharing my card here:

As You Like It Challenge - Flora or Fauna and why (I can't possibly choose between flora and fauna, because I love both equally. So while my last card linked featured "fauna" this one is all about "flora". I used to be more of a "fauna" person (when papercrafting) but that changed in the recent years when I discovered many of my favorite floral stamps.
