Seeds, Plant, Harvest

Welcome to my weekly post for Artistic Outpost. Today I am showcasing the fabulous newly released Harvest, Seed Packets Background and Grunge Elements stamp sets available on Our Daily Bread Designs website.
I have opted for a more neutral colour palette this time around, giving an aged vintage feel to the imagery. I began by applying Vintage Photo Distress Ink to the background of the Kraft card; adding the ink to a piece of plastic packaging, spritzing with water and then pressing the ink onto the background and then drying with a heat tool. I then applied Potting Soil Archival ink to the Seed Packets Background stamp and stamped towards one edge of my card. I then die cut a small circle from the card using a circle die and then applied Vintage Photo Distress Ink around the circular aperture.
I then die cut a second circle from white card and then stamped the boy from the Harvest stamp set onto the circle using Potting Soil Archival Ink. I applied Vintage Photo Distress Ink to a non-stick craft sheet, spritzed with water and then mopped up the ink lightly with the card to age and then dried with a heat tool. I then adhered the decorated piece and the circle to a card blank. I added a memo pin, attaching a small tag to the pin stamped with part of the imagery from the Seed Packets Background stamp along with a stamped plant label, again using part of the imagery from the Seed Packets Background. I aged the plastic plant label with Potting Soil Archival Ink.
I stamped the sentiment onto a separate piece of craft card, bent the card to age and then coloured with Vintage Photo Distress Ink, applying more ink to the creases. To add further to the aged feel I used background stamps from the Grunge Elements stamp set, stamping with Potting Soil Archival Ink.
To complete, I added some splatters of Fresco Finish Snowflake Paint to the background.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
