How Does Your Garden Grow?

If you have been reading my blog for a while, you know I am lucky enough to be getting the Hero Arts My Monthly Hero kit.  The kits are so fun and there are awesome add-on products that you can buy.  I made this card using the March kit.



What I Used to Make my Card:
White Card Base
Hero Arts MMH Kit - March, 2017
Tim Holtz/Sizzix Labels Die Set, #660060
Hero Arts Intense Black Ink
Distress Ink in Ground Expresso
Inktense Color Pencils
Watercolor Paper
Light Brown Cardstock
Light Blue Cardstock
Toothpick
E6000 (or other industrial glue)

First I used Intense Black to stamp a bunch of veggies on watercolor paper.  I used my Inktense Pencils to color them, drying them in between coats of color (for me, it is easier to color small die cuts when they are not cut out - keeping them all together while coloring, then die cut them.)  Once you're done coloring the veggies, die cut them and set them aside.

I then cut the field out of light brown card, using the same color card to make my sign.  I used the Labels to cut out a square that fit the sentiment using the same light brown cardstock that I used for the field.  I stamped the sentiment in Ground Espresso, then edged the sign using the same.  I smudged the ink along the sides to make the sign look a bit more weathered.  I glued the toothpick to the back of the sign using E6000 and set it aside to dry overnight. 
Another Look

I placed the veggies in the field then attached them.  I glued the sign to the back panel I made of light blue card, positioned the field, plus veggies, and adhered that as well.

I hope my card didn't make you hungry; personally, I've been craving carrots, but that isn't your problem 😉.  Enjoy your day! Christi
