I'm back to share another card this afternoon, squeezing in a post before I take Miss Priss to her little gymnastics class.
I have the relatively new WPlus9's Punny Produce: Tomatoes set. And, I love it. I bought it to make a set of gift cards for Big Daddy's Grannie. She LOVES tomatoes. Like to the point it's a laughing matter in the family. I told him this summer after a visit with her (and the kids kept finding canned tomatoes in the bedrooms! lining just about every bit of floor space she had) - I said "Mark my words. I'm going to find a tomato stamp set and make her something for Christmas!" LOL. And then little angels over at WPlus9 were reading my diary after I went to sleep and they came up with this adorable set!
I wanted to try something "different" using these stamps and decided to try these images out with watercolor effects. And I love how I turned out.
I stamped the outlines repeatedly up and down the sides of the panel, then stamped the inner layers using ink that was smeared on my craft mat and spritzed with water. I just trimmed the kraft cardstock panel with pinking shears - nothing fancy.
I'm playing along with Runway Inspired Challenge -- I love how the colors of the tomatoes match up with this dress and the strips of the images up and down the side of the panel remind me of the lines in her dress. Stop it.
