I decided to combine a few different stamps from Penny Black and create this
cute garden scene.
I stamped the outline stamps (Bunny from set
Garden Friends - I used the retired
wood mounted version Sweet Talk, Rose stamp from the set
All Abloom) onto watercolor paper using
my usual Versafine Clair Nocturne ink. and then heat embossed with Clear Ultra Fine Embossing Powder.

. I usually simply use ink from the ink pads (I prefer to use regular
distress inks and not oxides for watercoloring) by pressing a corner onto a
clear block then picking up the ink with a
Zig detailer waterbrush
for coloring. A stamp from the Penny Black set Sprigs
was used with distress ink to fill in some of the ground then simply
watercolored the grassy background and soil.
To make some clouds in the sky, I used an old Stampin Up cloud stencil and
Distress Oxide ink with an ink blending too. My stencil is retired but
this one from MFT
would be a similar
