We had such fun giving you inspiration with these beauties!
There just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day at times right? I missed showing off a card with this set earlier in the week, so I had to give Sage Advice a whirl today!
I had a completely different direction I was going with this set in my mind at first, but when I looked up some ideas for colanders, and I saw the red enamelware ones....I couldn’t help myself but to colour it this way. I love the contrast between the green of the herbs and the red colander. And oh my word, those cute plant signs???? Gorgeous!
After colouring it up with Copics I created that enamelware look by adding Picket Fence Distress Ink marker in tiny dots overtop. I love the look.
Hopefully you can see in the background of the card I added some texture that looks just like the gingham theme in the design as well.
I also wanted to give the plant markers the feel of chalkboard signs, so I left some white space border around the plant names to give that illusion.
Some pretty curves, gingham, trim and a button finish it all off.
Now I hope you can stop by the rest of the fabulous Bloom Brigade and see their creations today, they are all such gems and so talented.
It’s been a delight to share this week with you! Go cultivate some love of your own :)
