Mottisfont June...and May too!

I think I have said it before but the roses at Mottisfont are glorious in June. A lot of the stock of old english roses is held here and so this means most of the roses are beautifully scented. In June they keep the gardens open til 8pm just so you can appreciate the scent more. Its Amazing!

I stamped onto tissue paper for this one, love the effect!

And isn't she gorgeous?

Here's May...

Mottisfont May contd

More messing around with different techniques...

For this one, I sanded aroound the bud with a little water and then coloured in with caran d'ache crayons.

More sanding and colouring...

Doesn't this stamp look great with the aquilegia?
