This month we are heading to France and I couldn’t wait to turn this inspiration into a card. I had so many ideas that it took me longer than it should, but this is what I finished up with, hope you like it!
You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at Youtube.
This is a photo of an amazing garden that my husband and I visited when we were in the Loire Valley in France, this garden was truly incredible (and this is literally just one section of it).
For all the deets and to join in the fun at this month’s challenge you can head over to the Altenew Blog.
Other Supplies: Watercolour Cardstock – Bamboo Paper Pad (Rossdale), American Crafts Cardstock – Mint / Olive.

Oh la la!!! (Sorry, that slipped out) ;-P This is card is jaw-dropping gorgeous Therese – I will look forward to watching the video tonight after work 😀
Just gorgeous, Therese! LOve the pink/olive combo! You are so right about the wow factor from the black beads! OH … Guess what arrived? YES! I’m going to have a play with this set today! Always inspired when I visit your place! xx
Gorgeous inspiration photo and card..
love your idea of painting spots first and then stamp the image…
Beautiful card and great tips in your video!
Just when I thought I didn’t need any more floral stamp sets! Your flowers are absolutely gorgeous, Therese! I love the softness of the watercolors and how they stand out so well with the cover plate! Really stunning card!
This is beautiful Therese! Love the images and colours!
Love those colours and the beautiful flowers against that olive cover plate! Another beauty from you and from Altenew, Therese!
I LOVE your take on that inspiration photo Therese! The soft watercolour flowers stand out beautifully against that soft green background. I really must get my set out (as yet, shamefully unused) and ink it up! Thanks for always inspiring! Have a great day/evening! Hazel xx
My Card Attic
I never thought to just watercolor the paper and then stamp the flowers. Thanks for the inspiration, Therese. Your card is gorgeous.
That garden photo is beautiful! I love your card, that is a really good tip about the low tack tape and getting your die cuts out of the die. I don’t use dies a lot, partially because of little things like that, so this is helpful for me! TFS!
Tout simplement magnifique, Therese … une carte subtile et rafinée … absolutment superbe! Hugs, Anita 🙂
Lovely Card, and a wonderful take on that lovely inspiration photograph! I really like that shutter die too…
PS…I have a little blob of blutack lurking on the front of my Big Shot to help with the removal of recalcitrant die cuts…works a treat too.
Very pretty. A great take on your awesome inspiration photo. One day I hope to get to France 🙂
