Freshly Made Sketches #81

There's a new sketch up at Freshly Made Sketches.  This is sketch #81...and it's a good one...see...

As soon as I saw the sketch, I kind of knew what I wanted to do...and here's how it came out.


The image is from a Flourishes set called Garden Fresh.  I stamped the image in black and scanned it into my computer so that I could open the image in my Silhouette program and make a cut file for the image.  You could do this with any stamp and it would take all the work out of fussy cutting!  After I cut out the shape, I stamped the image onto the cut shape and then colored it with Copics. I use a SU embossing folder to emboss the top portion of green card stock.  The sentiment is also from the Garden Fresh set and is stamped in black on the lighter green that I put on the bottom.  Although the brads look red, they are actually a bright orange.  I adhered the two pieces of green together and added a solid green strip over the seam and then pop dotted the entire panel over a white card base.  I also added a few lines of faux stitching around the green on the bottom.  The carrots were pop dotted over the embossed panel.  

After I bought the Garden Fresh set, I couldn't decide how to use them on a card...until today.  This is the first time this set has seen ink.  I think the sentiment could be taken two ways...carrots are good for you....or as a congrats for a job well done "good for you!".  Either way, it kind of works, don't you think?

Thanks so much for stopping by! Your comments and your visits are always appreciated!! Until next time...


Hugs!

I love it! The colours are just fab - and I love carrots! Great texture in the background too.

I really must play with that feature on my Cameo - I can't imagine trying to cut around the little hairs on the carrots!!!
