Lettuce Celebrate!

I haven't used my Beatrix Potter / The Tale of Peter Rabbit stamp set from Crafter's Companion in quite awhile, so I pulled this cute stamp & sentiment to make a fun little card. 

The "cabbage" looks a lot better IRL, but whatever the result, I had so much fun making it! The leaves were cut from a shiny Core'dinations cardstock with an oval Spellbinders die, then embossed with the "lace" Fiskars texture plate in my BigShot. I sanded & distressed them with my new favorite tool, Ingvild Bolme's Comfort-Craft Tools Distressing Tool from Prima.

I colored the image with Copics, and added Polar White FlowerSoft to the tail and Glossy Accents to the watering can. I really like how the Recollections gemstones align so well to the Spellbinders diecut.


The sentiment piece was stamped with brown Memento ink, then cut out with the banner die from a•muse studio's Cupcake Toppers set and sprayed it with Meadow Green Tattered Angels glimmer mist.The background papers are shiny papers from Recollections (Michaels), and it's all topped off with that gorgeous brown "silk crush" May Arts ribbon.
