Happy Saturday to you!
I recently got my order from Concord & 9th, and among their new
release was the Vintage Artichoke stamp and dies.
The Vintage Artichoke is a lined stamp, perfect for coloring.
I did 2, one stamped with Hero Arts' Wet Cement, and Copic colored, the other
stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black on Kraft, and colored with pencils.
The sketchy quality of the stamp gives the image a wonderfully shaded form to
each 'petal' of the artichoke. But the fun comes when you use the die to cut
the choke's petals.
Isn't that genius? And who doesn't love artichokes? Dipped in aloli, or some other
creamy delicacy... yum!
I've paired my artichokes with C9's Woven Plaid Background stamp die
cut with the Greetery's Crimped Frame die.
Tried to keep both cards simple so the artichoke would shine, but couldn't resist
adding the acorns and leaf to the Kraft card. They'[re from another C9 recently released
set called, Autumn Harvest.
Hope you enjoyed my post today and felt a little taste of autumn.
We've cooled down to high 90's today, after a week of 102-104.
So ready for fall!
