Stitched Spring Garden


This is Anja again. This week I added a bunch of new Zig markers to my collection and I had to try them out. I used dies from the Stitches collection and combined them in a light Spring garden card. This dies are so fun to use and you can combine them in different theme cards.

For this card I used:
- Cottage Cutz dies (Stitched Flowers, Stitched Garden Friends, Stitched Honey Bees, Stitched Sun, Clouds & Umbrella),
- watercolor paper for background (14,5x14,5 cm) and die cuts,
- craft card base (15x15 cm),
- Zig markers (numbers: 024, 043, 046, 052, 063, 065, 066, 083, 094, 200,  260)
- Distress Inks (Tumbled Glass, Stormy Sky),
- water spritzer,
- watercolor brush,
- black pen,
- white pen,
- heat gun,
- paper glue. 

First I die cut all the pieces from watercolor paper. I used Zig markers and watercolor brush to color it. First I colored on the edge and then pushed colored with the watercolor brush to the middle. I don't have a black Zig marker, so I used a black brush pen.

I also used watercolor paper for the sky background. I used two blue Distress Inks to color the paper. Then I spritzed a few water drops over it and dried the paper with the heat gun.


When I had everything colored I added eyes to the snail and the bee. I used black and white pen. Then I arranged the sun, flowers, clouds and critters on the card. I decided to use the stitched fly lines also.

And this is my finished card.

Rise & Shine dies are still available for 25 % less, so don't forget to check them it out.

Have a beautiful Sunday and a nice week ahead.
Se you next time.
