Wooden Garden Cart

Hi Bloggers.

Here's today's card -

The background on this one is actually made up from waste ink on my Craft Sheet and on a mini stencil. The waste ink that was mopped up from my Craft Sheet was Vintage Photo and Fired Brick Distress Oxides. I had inked through the Creative Expressions Vintage Diamond Mini Stencil with Vintage Photo Oxide on another project I misted the stencil with water and pressed it into my card - you canjust make it out on the background. I edged my background with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide using a Smoothie. I matted onto Dark Roast Coffee Card and then Coconut White Card.

I cut the Wooden Garden Cart out of Cinnamon Card twice. I inked through the die on one of them with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide. I cut away the top section of the inked one so that I could slot my veggies in. On the other one, I cut away the handles and the wheel, just to make it earier to layer up.

I cut some vegetables out of Coconut White Card using the Wooden Garden Cart Die Set. I coloured them using Pixie Powders - Burnt Orange, Lava Red and Pale Olive.

I added my veg to the cart and added the top layer using small pieces of CE Mounting Cushion.

I cut the sentiment from the Life is a Garden Die Set out of Cinnamon Card and out of Dark Roast Coffee Card. I trimmed the bottom of the swirl off and glued the 2 die cuts together, offsetting them to create a drop shadow.

I misted a piece of Coconut White Card with water. I sprinkled Burnt Orange, Straw Yellow and Bronze Blush Pixie Powders over and put aside to dry. Once dry, I cut a pair of Sycamore Branch out of it and the little leaves in the set out of it a couple of times.

Thanks for stopping by.
