Plant Smiles, Grow Giggles, Harvest Love!

Hello! Tracy Shultz, the Hopeful Crafter here today with a beautiful natured themed card featuring two Technique Junkies stamps from the May 2021 release: Plant Smiles and Secret Garden.

To create this card, I followed these steps:
1. Using a piece of 4" x 5.25" white card stock, I used watercolor brush tip markers (Dual Art brand from Amazon) to color the background stamp Secret Garden (S903) . This technique is very easy and it allows me to color each section of the stamp a different color.  
2. I used three colors of Catherine Pooler inks to stamp the sentiment Plant Smiles (SD1084). The colors of ink that I used to create this Ombre effect are: Aquatini, Something Borrowed and Flirty Fuchsia.
3. I used the Deckle Trimmer to trim the sentiment. I popped the sentiment up on foam tape and adhered it to the Secret Garden card panel.
4. I used a side folding  A2 card base, size 4.25" 5.5" in Kelly Green color. I love the way the color of this card base matches the green color marker that I used for the background stamp.

Here's a closer look at all the stamps in the May 2021 release:
