Homegrown Vintage

Hey Everyone!

I hope you all enjoyed a lovely weekend with your families.  My step sister Roz got married this weekend, so I was lucky enough to be surrounded by family at a really great party! 

Today's card is one I am going to make a bunch of for my husband to keep in his office to use for little notes and things to his colleagues and students.  I think they're just perfect for a chef to have on hand at all times!  :)

I used the Homegrown stamp set (so awesomely vintage and cool!) and I stamped the artichoke in Basic Black and then coloured it in with my Pear Pizzazz and Always Artichoke Stampin' Write Markers.  The 'homegrown' was stamped in Crumb Cake randomly on my backround paper to up the vintage factor.  I've used two different papers from the Newsprint Designer Series Paper as well as some Basic Black and Always Artichoke cardstock.  I did some sponging, added a couple of brads, and wrapped some hemp twine around my focal image and it was done!  This came together very easily as I had some awesome inspiration from 'ponygirl40'.  Thanks!

I hope some of you can find some inspiration in some of the things I have here on my blog one day.

Happy Stampin'
