The Root of the Carrot

I'm busily making Easter cards both to send to friends and relatives and to sell at our Easter Sale at church.  Here are two that I made last night.
I die cut a stitched mat rectangle and stamped the carrot on it.  I colored the carrot with Ranger Distress Markers.  I stamped the little bunnies from A Good Egg by Waltzingmouse in Grout Grey ink on the panel to keep the focus on the carrot.  I embossed my orange panel with a mixed dots embossing folder by Darice.




I used the same carrot on my second card - stamping it multiple times in an uneven row.  I splattered some River Rock ink mixed with water on the panel using an old toothbrush.  The sentiment is Hero Arts.
They both have carrots on them so I could link them up over at the CASology challenge - cue card ROOTS.  Since a carrot is a ROOT vegetable I think these will do!
Stamps:  Carrot -  says Heather on the side (a wooden stamp), bunnies from A Good Egg - Waltzingmouse, Easter Greetings - Hero Arts.

Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black, Grout Gray - Color Box, River Rock Reinker - SU

These are both fabulous cards. Perfect for the root cue word at CASology this week. They also happen to be my very favorite veggie. Thanks so much for playing along at CASology this week.

Julia--how were you able to link two cards from the same blog post to the same challenge???? (ie--the holy grail of challenge linking).

Julia Aston said...

Hi Joyce - in response to your question: I linked one card one day and the other card the next day - and it took it!
