Hi everyone! Happy December 1st! Yay… one of my favorite months of the year! Love December – the sites, the sounds and the smells! Our new challenge is live over at Mix It Up Challenge Blog and I’m stoked to share my DT inspiration project for MIUCB #32 – Anything Goes + Veggie Stamping! Yep, you read that right… let your creativity soar with carrots, green beans, dried beans, lettuce, celery, etc.! I used celery! ;)
I created roses with the celery. It’s a good thing I had two celery ends, lol! I initially tried acrylic paint but it didn’t work too well so I used the second celery end on ink pads, and that was definitely the ticket – they turned out pretty good! I stamped and watercolored some leaves on each of the roses.
While I had the acrylic paint out, I ‘stamped’ the bottom panel with bubble wrap. After adding the rose panel, I added green glitter and green stripe Washi Tape at the seam, and stamped the sentiment across the bottom.
I embellished the inside panel with a leftover piece of the celery-stamped rose panel and some of the Washi Tape, and then stamped the simpel sentiment.
Here’s one more peek… I absolutely LOVE how this turned out! This was definitely a fun challenge!
