Old English Garden Collection

Welcome everyone, it's Wednesday and today I have a project featuring the gorgeous new collection "Old English Garden" from Heartfelt Creations.

We are delighted to present the Old English Garden Collection.  Come have a cup of tea with us in our Old English Garden. With flower blooms as fresh as the morning dew and cracked walls as old as the dirt beneath it, this set offers a rustic flavor. The typography flows as smoothly as a calm spring breeze.  Be sure to grab the custom die for maximum creative versatility and fun 3D depth! There are 6 new PreCut Stamp Sets and one beautiful new exclusive Spellbinders die designed for Heartfelt Creations.  

Leave a comment on the HC blog by May 15th and you will be eligible to win the entire release valued at $141.99.

Now for my project, I used the "Tattered Collage" for my focal image, isn't this a gorgeous image, love all the beautiful detail and the flowers are amazing.  The background I created by stamping one of the images from "Tattered Background" on white cardstock with watermark ink and heat embossed with clear embossing powder, I then shaded the image with a couple of Gelatos.  
Here is a closeup of the collage image, this was stamped on watercolor paper and colored with W&N watercolor paints.
I stamped all the flowers also on watercolor paper, cut with coordinating dies and painted with watercolor paints.  For the centers I used this beautiful Elements glitter called "Fairy Bed", love the texture and color in this one.
Thank you so much for stopping by, make sure to stop by the HC Blog for tons of gorgeous inspiration.  Hope you have a wonderful and creative day.
