Seeds of Love

Welcome to the monthly Artistic Outpost Design Team blog hop.  The theme this month is love! 

I went searching for images to create a Valentines Day card and decided to use the seed packets along with a few other sets to create a card for my youngest daughter for Valentines Day.
I started with the little girl with her wheelbarrow and colored her flowers with tiny hearts mixed in the midst of the leafy vines.  I coordinated her outfit in red and added a punched red heart.

The seed packet was stamped multiple times using red and black inks.  I added a little banner with red letters.  I stamped the banner and the added the hearts to it.

Products: Artistic Outpost - Ephemera Backgrounds, Artistic Outpost - Bloom and Grow, Artistic Outpost - Country Life, Ranger Archival Ink - Black, STAEDTLER - Karat Aquarell Watercolor Pencils,

We are also thrilled to have several new design team members join the Artistic Outpost Design Team for 2013!  Now hop along to see what the talented design team members have created for the hop:


Thanks for stopping by!
