Spellbinders Invitation ~ Susan's Garden Club ~ Oriental Lily & Wellies

Hello friends~  
Gardening is one of my passions so I was super excited for the chance to work with this new release from Susan's Garden Club for Spellbinders.  

I chose Oriental Lily & Wellies to create a Gardener's Gift Set. 
This gift is earth friendly, as it uses a recycled produce carton from my local grocery store.  I added a bar of homemade goat's milk soap that my daughter and I make, a nail brush, deep penetrating hand butter and a lotion from B&BW (because the label coordinated so perfectly with the wellies).  

I cut the wellies and several lilies out of Canson 140# Coldpress Watercolor cardstock and painted them using Gansai Tambi water colors from Kuretake.  The freckles are made with medium brown paint splatters. I assembled the flowers according to the video tutorial found HERE. They were very easy to assemble! If you look closely, you'll see that I added some yellow pollen to the stamen of the lilies.
This is a cute and quick gift idea.
