Serendipity DT Challenge

Good morning everyone!

Today I am so excited to share Serendipity Stamps' first official Design Team challenge with you! Our theme for this month's challenge was 'garden'. The hardest part of the whole challenge was deciding which Serendipity stamps to use! The selection in this particular category is very extensive!

I finally decided on what has turned out to be one of my favorite Serendipity stamps, the Marigold Seed Packet. I had been dreaming about how I wanted to use this stamp special for this challenge!

The image was stamped onto Rustic Cream cardstock with Rich Cocoa Memento Ink and colored with Copic markers. I had so much fun coloring and layering and shading!

The supply details can be found below in the recipe. The seed packet image itself is 3" by 4" and is finely detailed - it is a beautiful stamp. The final card size is 5" square.
