The three cards today all use edge cutting to make the focal image stand out. All are colored with watercolor markers.
First up is a lily. I made a background element with sticky-backed cardstock by using the border punch on two adjacent sides. I stamped on the left corner and mounted the flower on the right before adhering all to a green card base.
The purple birdhouses also got a scalloped edge panel and a stamped greeting. Changing the text to a script makes a big impact on the feel of this card. I used a fine line black marker to give both of the birdhouses a post to stand on and then colored them in with marker.
The wheelbarrow image was split along the top edge to separate the front from the back of the cart. The front layer is on foam dots and the back layer is glued flat to the background. I used glue dots to adhere paper flowers in and around the cart and gave them rhinestone centers. The greeting at the top is stamped.
