Love You Bunches

Sparkle and Bling is the optional twist this week over at Twisted Thursday, The Outlawz Our sponsor this month is MHK Designs. A full set of sentiments and veggies is called "Eat Your Veg!" I selected these carrots to make a card for someone special. The background is made from adding color pulled up with masking tape from Distress inks. Fun technique! The carrots were fussy cut. The panel was wrapped with twine and the sentiment was popped with foam for dimension.  I didn't want to get too wild so I just added some orange enamel dots and some Wink of Stella for subtle sparkle and bling.

  1. Wow, Jean, I always learn such fun new techniques from you! I'm going to have to give that masking tape transfer technique a try! (Say that 5 times fast!) That turned out fabulous! Your carrots are colored so beautifully, also! Great card!

    1. I had to laugh, Carrie, because I had to read how I did the background. If I don't write it down, I can never remember how I did anything anymore! Now, let's see if I ever remember to use it again!

  3. Such a bright card; makes me want some colorful veggies! I love the masking tape technique behind those carrots! Off topic, but I just read your bio in the corner and noticed you taught music as well as art! I studied music also and teach privately. So cool when you find others in your field!
