peapod card

The Baroque motif stamped in green works well as the tendrils of the pea plant.
First I daubed the edges of white cardwith bashful blue ink bringing the ink quite a long way into the center but not all the way.
I inked up the baroque motif stamp with old olive ink and stamped it diagonally across the card.
I added a few small flowers and leaves and the punched out the peapod using the large oval punch twice and cut the inside edge to where I wanted it , daubed the edges with old olive ink and stuck on top of a darker green oval. I then punched a small circle daubed with blossom blush ink and just a touch of red for the cheeks, I drew on the face using the fine end of the stamp and write marker pens,
Then using a sticky foam pad adhered it to the top of the pod.
I then stamped my greeting, Then mounted the whole picture onto green card stock and again onto the plum card base.
