Inspiring Crate Labels

Supplies:  Heartfelt Creations stamp, Nestibilities, SU Wonder Watercolor Crayons and mini clip, Old Olive, Black, White and SU DP, Black Craft and Yellow Classic ink, Brayer, Chipboard, Black EP.
Hi All!

Come join me this weekend over on Splitcoast for the Inspiration Challenge!!  The website to visit for inspiration is Crate Paper Museum.

This "Ozark Strawberries" label was my inspiration piece for this card.

I embossed the strawberry patch with black EP and colored in the image with watercolor crayons. Did some fussy cutting and attached it to a black oval die cut. I layered this over a panel of white CS that I brayered in yellow.  Doodled stitches around the border and punched a border along the bottom so the inside DP would show through.

The embellishment is a chipboard piece that I covered with polka-dot DP and one of the strawberries from the image that I snipped off!

Hope you'll join in the IC this week everyone!

TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!

Great inspired Card my Anne! I was away teaching last night and today and missed the challenge - maybe tonight if I have ANY strength left!

Love your strawberries and wonderful bright colors on this!

OmGosh you are such an artist. I love that card. I have been inspired by it. I think I will give those colors a try tonight. I find it difficult to step outside the box unless inspired. Thank you!
