In My Garden card with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "In My Garden".

Botanical themes are always fun to do. Unfortunately, I don't have a garden, just a balcony. But that didn't stop me. I started applying washi tape in different widths and colors. Over that I applied a layer of Opal Magic Violet-Green paint. Then I applied a subtle second layer of color with Mod Podge and Infusions. When that was dry I had some fun getting color on there with Distres Oxides, followed by more Infusions.


To add some extra texture, I mixed texture paste with Gunmetal paint and used the Typo stencil. Unfortunately, I had problems with my recording. I film my videos with my phone and sometimes if I want to stop the recording or the maximum is reached, then it freezes and the whole clip is lost. Fortunately it nothing really big was lost, only the coloring of the greens and flowers are missing. Pfewww...
