Copics Creations Challenge ~ Wood

 It’s hard to believe it’s the middle of June already!!   Why do the summer months go by so much quicker than the winter months?   The 15th of the month means ANOTHER Copic Creations’ challenge.  Our challenge this time is coloring WOOD.

My secret garden

My secret garden

I’ve always loved books and movies that portray “secret gardens”….they always seem so magical!   So, when I found this Flower Soft stamp at my LSS calledThe Gate ~ I knew I HAD to have it.   The stamp set comes in separate pieces for EACH item shown, so you have lots of options and variety in creating a garden gate scene.   As a matter of fact, do you know what the three little birds are watching?!   🙂

I added lots of my favorite embellishment to this card ~  Flower Soft,  in Violet, Heather, Fuchsia, Bright Pink & Sunshine Yellow.   I did control myself by not adding EVERY color available!   🙂
