The theme this month was 'Chelsea flower show' - I decided to base mine on the gardens that are created for this.
The poppies are from different Choc Baroque stamps, all stamped in black versafine on white card, coloured with promarkers and cut out. All the background stamps are from the new edges series - the wall from the landscape edges set (it is meant to be used horizontally, but I thought it worked fine vertically as a pillar) stamped in grey up the left edge and along the top. The leaves are from the floral edges set, coloured with green marker pens, and the meadow grasses from the same set, repeat
The same leaves and grasses were used on the second tile, with a rather darker sky this time, and black soot sponged round the edges. the roses were made using the small flower from the Tim Holtz tattered floral die.
