Garden Fresh


Good Saturday Morning!
It's Blog Hop time at PTI, 
and Nichole has challenged us big time with this dreamy art piece


Inspiration? Yes! But it took me everywhere.
Finally narrowed it down to Garden Medley.
I know, vegetables?
Well just roll with me...


1st card, using the vegetables, and more PTI inks for each stamping 
than you care to know. Spritzed each stamp, before stamping. 
(Believe me, there's a pile on my work table, not fit to show!)
Bird and branch from Spring Woods.


I had so many vegetables
 left over, decided to do a 2nd card.
This time, letting the bg paper dictate colors.


This time, used the word stamp, 'artichoke' included in the set, curving it 
the way Melissa Phillips did when the set was released.
Cover Plate: Delightful

Thank you for visiting, and enjoy the hop!
Always so much to see and ideas to case!!!


Before you hop on, a quick look at the Penirs' tomatoes.
This year, I've got quite a crop! Must be the hot weather.
Must remember to be thankful for the heat!

  4. Love both your cards!! I sure CAN see all the inks used in the veggies, which give them such depth and realism. Gorgeous! I think my favourite is the artichoke card, as I'm especially drawn to the colour combo used.

  8. Nancy I love where the inspiration took you and quite frankly I see how you were inspired! Two cool and gorgeous cards and the spritzing made such a dramatic effect. Lucky you with the tomatoes, I have never had a lot of luck with tomatoes, I am sure it's the climate.

  20. Aren't some seaweeds known as vegetables of the sea Nancy? I think there is more of a link with the pic and your veggies than you first thought! I love how you've been inspired...your cards are always so unique - I love the spritzed stamping on the first. It makes the veggies looks really soft and pretty!
