Betsy made this technique look so easy, and I suppose if I had the stencil from the new Herb Garden kit that Betsy used, it probably would have been a lot easier! I tried to make my own from cardstock, and I think it was too thick to let me do the masking and stamping. Or maybe I'm just too picky and want everything precise! (probably the later!!) But anyway, this is what I came up with:
I love the colors I used and an old favorite stamp set (Simple Sunflower), but wasn't thrilled with the way the left edge stamped and then tried to repair it, and not thrilled with that either. But it is what it is, and I do love that sentiment from Beautiful Berries: Spring that Betsy used on her card too!
At this point, I thought why not just try using the same set as Betsy since I already had it out for the sentiment anyway. I changed up my colors from Betsy's card and I do like the colors, just not the framing again!
There's still time to play and you can check out Betsy's GORGEOUS card and video right HERE.
Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!
