I love this chair and all the elements with the birds, hat and chair pillows. I thought it would look cute out under a tree. I masked off the sentiment with a piece post-it to ink the stamp and then removed it before placing image on paper. I sketched the tree and the hedge row with an artist pen and used Watercolor Minis fern for the leaves and to fill in the grass. I painted with reinkers and watercolor brush.

Your creations are truly works of art and need to be framed. Anyone who receives one of your cards needs to hang onto it forever. Wish it was me because I would have it framed and hanging in my home for all to enjoy.

What a peaceful and beautiful card! :) I love how you used the watercolor minis to fill in the grass. That's a great idea!
I consider it a bad sign that I looked at the card, thought that you used the canvas background, but looking at your listed stamps, you used linen. So, apparently, I can't tell them apart, but I still own both of them. :lol:
Seeing your thumbnails is inspiring me to go through your gallery and see more! I'll be back later to take a closer look.
