Funky Fossil Designs New Stamp Preview - October 2019 (Plant A Garden Clear Stamp Set)

Funky Fossil Designs have some fabulous new clear stamps that will be available to purchase from 9am on the 19th October 2019.

Make sure you check back on the 19th October, when I will be sharing information about a fabulous give away.

One of the new designs is this gardening set called "Plant A Garden".  The images stamp a beautiful crisp image and are lovely to work with.

For this tag, I decided I wanted shades of pastel colours for the background.  I used three shades of Distress Oxide Inks (Old Paper, Tumbled Glass and Milled Lavender) with a blending tool.

I used the Picked Raspberry shade of Distress Oxide through the Funky Fossil stencil called "Micro Dots" to created the over lay pattern.

I covered a plain white off-cut of card in the "Picked Raspberry" Distress Oxide Ink, then stamped the sentiment "To Plant A Garden Is To Believe In Tomorrow" in Versafine Clair "Monarch" shade of purple ink.  I then cut the sentiment into sections for use towards the end of the project.

On a white off-cut of card, I stamped the flower pot using the Wilted Violet shade of Distress Oxide ink.  I then filled in the colour using a paint brush and the same ink and then cut out the shape.

Using a Versafine Clair green ink called "Shady Lane", I stamped the flowers.  I adhered the painted flower pot over the flowers.  I coloured the flower heads using a purple Sakura Gelly Roll pen.

Finally, I stuck the words into position and inked the edges of the tag using the Versafine Clair, Purple "Monarch" ink and added some butterflies in the same ink.

If you have a moment to spare, please do pop over and check out the gorgeous makes by my fellow Design Team colleagues:
