Garden Ferns


Ferns are one of my favourite plants in the garden and I find they translate onto my cards very easily.  That's what happened with this one as I am playing along with the Inspiration Challenge at Splitcoast.  Loved the pillow pictured below.
I was cleaning up in my garden and brought some fronds inside with me.  I laid one on my paper and sprayed with Mr. Huey's mist in brown (can you believe I didn't use blue!!).  When dry, I stamped over the ghost with a Hero Arts fern stamp and added the sentiment.
Always good to have some sympathy cards on hand.  Thanks for popping by.

Supplies:  stamps;  Hero Arts, Avery Elle/ Mr. Huey's mist/ pop dots/ fern
