In the Watercolour Garden - for Megs Garden

Hello everyone and welcome!!  Hope you are having a wonderful day!

I'm here to share two cards made with some stunning papers by Megs Garden.  The collection is called In the Watercolour Garden (hence my post Title) and it is absolutely gorgeous!!  The papers I have used here are from the A4 digital version but you can also purchase these papers in different sizes in both digital and printed format.
All of Meg's papers are fabulous to use as backgrounds but they also have some lovely images as well so, whatever you wish to create, from cards to layouts to mini books, there is a size and design to suit your needs.

I printed out two copies of the paper and cut one to size to be used as my base layer. 

I fussy cut the butterfly and two flowers from the second sheet and layered them over the original image.  I used some double sided foam tape to give it dimension.
The flower petals below were all from my stash and were all originally white.  Some of them were coloured with Lindy's Stamp Gang spray and others with watered down acrylic paint.  I then simply layered them to fill the chipboard frame and added some seed beads for the centers.

For my second card I printed a single sheet of my selected paper and added a bit of stenciling with texture paste in the top corner.

Some pretty lace from my stash was adhered down the center of the card.  I also added a piece of gauze and a couple of straws before attaching the flowers.
The blue flower is from my stash.  The smaller flowers are from the Garden.   All of them (except for the white one of course) were coloured with sprays.
The chippie is by Scrapmatts and I simply left it raw.  To create a bit more interest and texture, I added some prills and microbeads.
Instead of twine, I created the bow with some knitting cotton.  I find this best to use when I want a soft, floppy bow.

Although the laces I used on these cards came from my stash, Meg has some beautiful laces in her shop.  Some are similar to the ones shown here but there are many more as well.

Thank you so much for dropping by and taking a look.

Take care and God Bless.

  1. You really do make the most exquisite cards Margaret, and you are right about the papers on the first one, they are beautiful and your design is gorgeous. The second one is an absolute delight, the straws are so striking and the lace is so pretty. Two real stunners! Hugs, Anne xx

  2. Love them both Margaret but I do have to confess that the second one with the straws is my absolute favourite. So different and as Redanne above says Very striking !! xxx

  3. Both cards are just lovely, Margaret! Those papers are a gorgeous starting point for all your delicate layers. I'm just squealing with delight over those fussy cut flowers and butterfly on the first card that really add so much to this design. What a clever way to cluster your flowers in that chippie frame. I'm so going to borrow that idea! Your second card is stunning with the lace down the center paired with those bold straws! I love this clever design! Wow, Margaret, I wish there were more hours in the day to visit every single one of your posts...eventually I will be caught up--maybe. But in the meantime, let me thank you for your generous inspiration! Hugs!
