Less is more challenge #252: fruit
Before I got into stamping and colouring,as a photographer, I made photocards. And when I got my allotment garden, my Christmas cards turned vegetable inspired.
As I don't have any fruit stamps, two very small ones like 1cm square, not really a focal point I went back to one of my old photos.
I'm not sure if that's allowed as it's not a stamp, but it's my own image and I printed it with my Canon Selphy.
Couldn't find anything about photos in the guidelines and I thought it's pretty similar to a digital stamp.
I wanted to enter into the challenge, so I'm sorry if it's not allowed, but at least I came up with something lol.
I thought about doing paper piecing with a holly shape and red buttons, but they weren't as pretty as they looked in my head ;-)
Anyway I printed the photo, mounted it with
foamtape and used glitter washi tape strips to help focus on the panel, draw your eye in.
The pepper and tomato (technically fruits, not veggies) I stuck on some gold snowflake decals, I used metal wire to hang them in the tree (just one branch). I thought the red and green were nice and Christmassy.
The sentiment is from Hero arts, classic Christmas borders and I heat embossed that with Papermania gold embossing powder.
As I was stamping the sentiment I noticed a border with pinecones, now..are those fruits? I don't know...
here's a few others I made in the past...
