Whimsie Wednesday - Fruits and Veggies


Pin ItFor the latest Whimsie Wednesday challenge, Nikki, has challenged us to create a project with a "Fruits and Veggies" theme. I just had to use Whimsie Doodles' Sentiment Edibles digital set for this one. It is chock full of cute fruits and punny sentiments.

After printing the images, I chose some patterned papers from a 'vintage' stack I had laying around. To tone down/distress the coloring a bit, I went over the image with a light yellow COPIC markers. Before doing this, the colors were a bit too bright for the shabby feel of the card. To finish off the cards I inked some edges, rounded some corners and did a bit of stitching.

Just the details… (1) Colored the images using COPIC markers, (2) Stitched and inked around the edges of kraft mat, (3) Added some zig-zag stitches to the sentiment ribbon banner.
