Homegrown


Well, it's Easter Saturday and it's freezing! it certainly doesn't feel very springlike today, so I'm planning on catching up with some card challenges. Oh and the best news today is that my "Baking Tilda" stamp arrived from Joanna Sheen, so I'm looking forward to having fun with her later. My card today is for the Caardvark challenge of "Homegrown", the plan was to make a card showing fruit or vegetables.
I used an image of a sketched bowl of fruit and a few flowers, coloured with my Caran D'Ache watercolours and mounted onto some purpley pearlescent card. I added some purple paper from my stash, a strip of L'ouvre, a few purple gems and a little strip of offcut card that I again watercoloured to match the picture.
Nice, easy card (you may have noticed I don't do difficult) and I love colouring so very enjoyable too.

Until you said it was easy I was thinking what a complicated card! Lovely watercolouring. The fruit looks really yummy.
