With spring on the horizon can summer gardens be far behind? We have used these hollyhocks from Impression Obsession in a number of cards. I like that the stamps and the die-set match. When you die cut from white paper, your colour range is any marker/marker blends that you choose. This garden gate will work well with any scenery elements behind it, including your die-cut trees, branches, other flowers.
The cloud-bank stamp in the background is from Magenta and can look like some intense storm-clouds depending on what colours you use with it. Unlike the other specific lined cloud stamps, I love the positive and negative space in this arrangement. Don't hesitate to overstamp this multiple times and try mixing some of your shades.
