Summer Strawberries...


Here is my submission for the sketch on the Lime Tart blog.

I love the color combos for their kits that Lime Tart comes up with. I was going to do something brighter for their sketch - and had a different stamped image entirely picked out.


But I saw these berries on my stamping desk and started playing with my Prismacolor markers. Then I started thinking about picking berries. That made me think of those cute little baskets they come in (the real ones - not those nasty cardboard ones). Sometimes green, sometimes natural colored baskets.... then I started thinking about the Amish farms here in Pennsylvania..... well I just ended up with this card somehow.


The stamps are all justjohanna, from the new release. The paper is from this cute little pack of double sided paper swatches from Daisy D's.
Hope you like it - thanks for looking!
