Hardwood background stamp

For these cards I have used the Hardwood background stamp to create fences as the backdrops for my flower gardens.

The flowers are made with the Secret Garden stampset and co-ordinating Framelits, and are all stamped in Versamark and embossed with Clear embossing powder.  The cardstock is So Saffron, Daffodil Delight, Crisp Cantaloupe and Tangerine Tango, with Old Olive leaves and grass (cut with the Fringe Scissors).  "Love Ya" comes from Just Sayin' and the co-ordinating Word Bubble Framelits.  The butterfly is stamped in Tangerine Tango.

This second one uses the Bird Punch, punched 3 times and sponged in the same colour as the cardstock, to create a tulip, and the leaves from the same punch.   These ones are Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Crisp Cantaloupe and Pink Pirouette. The grass is of course cut with the Fringe Scissors in Old Olive again.  This fence is Baked Brown Sugar cardstock, sponged in Baked Brown Sugar also, over clear embossing powder, a-la the emboss-resist technique, making it lovely and glossy and textured.
