Witzy in the Garden

I think Witzy from Suzy's Zoo is so cute!  My BF got some Joanna Sheen stamps for me to play with, and I couldn't wait to make a card.

I started by embossing a lavender cardstock square and affixing it to a white card base, adding a strip of lace about 2/3 down.  I stamped Witzy in black on watercolour paper, coloured with watercolour markers, mounted on purple cardstock and affixed to the card with foam tape.  I stamped the sentiment in black on a green scrap and affixed to the bottom of the image.  Lastly I embellished with yellow flowers attached with brads, a purple ribbon flower, a butterfly charm tied with twine, and six lavender gemstones. Here are the supplies I used:
  • Stamps:  Witzy (Joanna Sheen -  Little Suzy's Zoo Slippery Slope JS351), sentiment (Kaisercraft)
  • Ink:  StazOn Jet Black
  • Cardstock:  Recollections
  • Watercolour paper:  Canson
  • Watercolour markers:  Tombow
  • Embossing folder:  Cuttlebug Baby's Breath
  • Lace and butterfly charm:  unknown from my stash
  • Ribbon flower:  Offray
  • Twine:  American Crafts
  • Flowers, brads, gems:  Dollar store
