Give Peas a Chance...inspired by a Vera Lane Studio image

Hi everyone. This month in the Vera Lane Studio Facebook group, we made ATCs following a Beatles theme for our monthly swap. I like to make a card for my swap partner so I can include a little note. This time, I followed the same Beatles theme, only I modified the lyrics slightly to suit the Snap Peas image I chose...just a bit of fun!

I coloured the two Snap Peas images with Prismacolor and Polychromos pencils, fussy cut leaving a white border, and then matted with black cardstock. The wording was printed onto white cardstock, cut into sections, and matted with black as well. Both the peas and the wording were popped up on foam tape.

The background was a piece of white cardstock which had been used to clean the Linsy's Starburst spray off of a stencil. Why waste all that yummy ink?It was stamped using an Indigio Blu Tasty Textures stamp with Sunflower Archival Ink. The same ink was applied to the edges of the card front. A border with hearts was doodled around the outside edges and Jet Black Archival was used to stamp Bokeh Circles with an Ellen Hutson stamp. To bring a little of the pink from her dress into the background, small circles were punched from pink mop-up paper, shaded and highlighted with coloured pencils, and edged with black Pitt Pen. These were scattered across the card front which was then matted with black, and popped onto a cream card base.

Thanks for joining the Snap Peas and me today. When you get a minute, be sure to pop by the Vera Lane Studio shop to see the huge array of fabulous images to colour as well as the pre-coloured collage sheets. There's sure to be something to spark your mojo and calls to you :)

Life is good; so is art.
