Peachy Keen Challenge 23

Good Morning Friends!

Time for another Peachy Keen Challenge. I had so much fun making this card! I love the faceless veggies and they were so much fun to color. So, here is the challenge.

Recipe -
*Must contain one of the faceless fruit or faceless veggie stamps.
*Must contain the colors green and yellow anywhere on the project
*Must have a 3d element on the project (this could be the image popped out or an embellishment)

I chose to use several of the faceless veggies. I stamped the tomatoes with red Memento Ink, the broccoli and peas with a green Memento Ink, the eggplant with a purple Memento Ink. I stamped the faces with black Memento Ink. The Memento Ink is the recommended ink to use if coloring with Copics. If you know of others that work equally as well you are welcome to share. Stazon will run with copics, but is great for prismacolor pencils and gamsol.

I made the basket with patterned paper. I lightly sketched it using the grid lines of the paper and cut it out. I added yellow gingham paper to line the basket as a "tablecloth". Then I filled it up with the veggies, added some ribbon and raffia to the basket handle and hand wrote "Pick of the Crop". I hope you will join the fun and play along! You have until March 8th to submit an entry. The DT will pick their favorite for this challenge. We love to see what you'll come up with. You can check out all the details here, and while you are there, have a peek at what the other DT members have created. They inspire me with their awesome designs, I am sure they will inspire you too! Thanks so much for stopping by! Happy Stamping!
