For my today’s project I used beautiful Build-A-Garden: Rocktrumpet & Add-on Die Bundle. This stamp set features a lush arrangement of rocktrumpets with plenty of foliage. They were drawn with minimal delicate lines, just perfect for colouring. The size will allow you to create wall art or multiple cards at once! When I first received the set and saw the size of the main stamp I immediately thought of a lovely wall art and it was an easy thing to come up with.

I stamped my floral arrangement with black ink onto watercolour cardstock and used Watercolor Brush Markers - Spring Garden Set to colour in the images. Next, I used coordinating Build-A-Garden: Rocktrumpet Add-on Die Set to cut it out.

To create my background I used a piece of watercolour paper painted with Misty Teal mixed with a drop of Prussian Blue from Artists' Gouache Set - Strolling Through New York. It all looks great without a frame but it could also have one for a more finished look.

That’s it for me! Your next stop on the hop is Emily Midgett!
