MIM #122

Getting in late with MIM, this week featuring Heather Nichols and
giving polka dot texture with Copic markers to our cards.
Inspiration comes from my garden, and the bumper crop of tomatoes this year!
It's hot and dry in the valley, perfect weather for growing fruits and vegetables!
I was thrilled when PTI added 'Vegetable Garden Stamps and dies!
Seed Packet diecut from Ocean Tides Pattern Pack,
tomato colored with lots of copic reds and that O which picks up the color.
Did some fussy cutting with the tomato leaves on the top of the diecut tomato, and inked them in Limeaid Ice, Simply Chartreuse, the darker leaves in Simply Chartreuse and Ripe Avocado.
All mounted on a sprayed screen stencil, that looks like chicken wire,
some corrugated cardstock and layers of patterned paper.
A few mums from Freckled Fawn and a scarlet jewel finish.
Oh yes, the sentiment from Bigger Blooms.
Don't think I need the darker tomato underneath, but I added it, and a jewel as an anchor.
Layers and patterns qualifies for Moxie Fab World's Mixy-Matchy Style Challenge.
Hope your weekend is cooler than mine. We're promised 109 through the coming week!
Meanwhile, enjoy a few more shameless photos of my veggie garden!
Don't you just love Armenian cucumbers?
Waiting for this guy to get a bit bigger, and then, fried in Panko!
These get roasted.
Thoroughly spoiled by homegrown!
Wishing you a beautiful (not as hot as mine) weekend!
