Plaid plants




Playing around with some DRS Designs stamps. I *love* these plants. I tried hard to use different colors so they each have their own look. I'm quite happy w/ how it turned out! And you see that plaid on the card base?? Yep, how cool! That's a plaid maker stamp! Love it! I inked it up and stamped it vertically, then inked it again, and stamped off once before stamping horizontally. I had picked out the dp before even thinking to stamp on the card base ~ love how that works out! And yes, I colored everything w/ my SU markers. I used olive, celery and artichoke for the leaves and rust and caramel for the pots and caramel for the shelf. Do you see those primas? Yea, well, I had not meant to put that there but while stamping my plaid bg, I accidently stamped on that corner of my image! AAARRRRHHHHHH!! Fortunately, it was just the corner and I immediately thought "primas!". And that little brad is too cute, has a leaf on it and matches the dp. And look, no piercing!!
Ok, better go for now. We're watching the weather closely and should be getting pounded with rain in about an hour!!!

I love the way you stamp. What a great image! Wonderful marker coloring with perfect shading. I have a Hero Arts plaid stamp that's similar. Love the way you used this one!
