I'm back today with another tag for Pinkie's Fruit and/or Vegetable challenge at Tag Tuesday. It was fun to play with my fruit and veggie stamps, seeing I've had them forever and haven't used them as much as I could have in the past few years. My inspiration for this tag was all the good veggies I hope to get from my garden this summer.
I started by stamping some small veggie images. These are from an ancient foam set from PSX that I bought around the time I started stamping, around 22-23 years ago. I colored them in and then stamped the quote on the tag a few times. I used some green water-reactive ink on the background, but I wasn't crazy about it at this point. To fix that, I took some thin green acrylic paint and covered the whole tag.
I stamped the big veggies with colored ink on white paper and fussy cut them. After I arranged and glued them on the tag, I stamped the quote 1 more time on white paper, cut it out and added it to my tag. Finally I used a green paint pen to make little dots all over the background; I outlined the edge of the tag with a black Sharpie, and lastly I attached a small washer I found on the floor around the hole at the top of the tag. I think the washer must have fallen as I was cleaning up a little bin of parts that had been sitting out on my screen porch all winter.
There you have it.
And to wrap up my post, I thought I would also share some flower photos today also.
