Yum! Tomato


Good morning, hope you all are having a great day. I'm so thrilled to be guest designer for Melanie Muenchinger illustrator for Gina K Designs. The card I'm showing here today is from her newest set "A Year of Leaves" I just love this set it can be used so many different ways. It is just the perfect set to use with other sets to change a look and give more uses to your set. My card is an example of this. So I combined "A Year of Leaves" with a set by Gina K "Summer Harvest" I used the tomato from summer harvest and drew in a longer stem and the rest is from A year of leaves.
I colored with copic's and embossed the caterpillar and used stamp-a-ma-jig to stamp the leaf right over the caterpillar, I then colored and cut out the leaf.
I could just that caterpillar eyeballing that tomato.
Supplies:
copics
self adhesive pearls
ribbon
DP is Basic Grey-June Bug.
Cardstock is rocket red from Gina K Designs.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you come back again.
