In the Garden at ACR

Good morning and happy Friday! Boy am I looking forward to chillaxing at the weekend, work has been mental this week.

It's time for a new challenge at A Creative Romance, and today our theme is 'In the Garden'

For my make today I've used Saturated Canary's Gardner Gayle, from Little Darlings Rubber Stamps, but this time I coloured her with distress inks and gave her a vintage feel, using Pion Design's Vintage Garden papers. There's a list of products used with links to the store at the end of my post.  

All papers have been distressed and inked with Walnut Stain distress ink and then hand sewn.
She was coloured with the following inks:

Skin: Tattered Rose, Tea Dye, Fired Brick
Hair: Antique Linen, Walnut Stain, Broken Twigs
Clothing and Flowers: Spun Sugar, Victorian Velvet, Weathered Wood, Old Paper,  Bundled Sage, Black Soot, Scattered Straw.
Basket: Scattered Straw, Vintage Photo, Broken Twigs

I used some beautiful die cuts made with some La-La Land dies. The card stock is a beautiful iridescent one, but sadly it isn't showing up on camera, which is a shame as it's quite lovely in the flesh. 

The beautiful lace and ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl, the bling is from The Hamdcrafted Card Company.

I finished off the inside quite simply with one of the 6 x 6 sheets. Flowers are all Wild Orchid Crafts.
Distress Ink Walnut Stain
Pink Loopy Ribbon
Pearlescent Cardstock

That's all from me today, I'll be back on Sunday with my make for Totally Tilda, have a great weekend! :) xx
