How Does Your Garden Grow?

I had been slowly painting a double icon today before I saw the fabulous one on the Paperartsy blog as part of the final #3up tweet challenge.

I've finished it now... and wish to enter it into the Country View Crafts challenge "how does your garden grow"

stamps are all by Jo Firth-Young for Paperartsy. Paints are Paperartsy Frescos

I used grey to stamp the criss cross randomly over the sky in the background

I can't get a decent photo tonight though, so may try again tomorrow!

This is another yummy one. All summery and colourful. Love that stamping n the sky - looks almost crackly from this end.
