Market Fresh

Market Fresh is a lovely stamp set by Stampin’ Up!  It has three different stamps that are perfect for coloring!  I have really been trying to work on my coloring skills and this is the perfect set to practice with.  market fresh

The sentiments are perfect for all types of projects.  I can’t wait to make strawberry jam (something I use to do….maybe I will get back to making jam this spring) and make cute little tags using strawberry stamp from this set!  The thanks a bunch is so very perfect!  When I see this I think of a bunch of wine grapes or concord grapes.  But, yesterday perusing Instagram (after I  had made my card for today) I saw a smart chick  color her grapes green!  Boy did they look wonderful.  I am going to have to color some green grapes soon.   And as soon as I figure out who to send Romaine Lettuce to I am going to be coloring that cut little guy in also!  I hope a celebration worth “Romaine Lettuce” is coming along in my near future!!!

The colors I chose to use were Blackberry Bliss, Old Olive, Lost Lagoon, and Tip Top Taupe.  This is a great combination.  I don’t normally use a lot of Lost Lagoon. But, truly it is a great color.  I should not neglect it as much as I do! Pour Lost Lagoon…



The background was made using  the dot  in the stamp set Work of Art.  Some of the dots look more like splotches because I stamped twice before re inking the stamp.  The smaller Blackberry Bliss  splotches were made with a very small paint brush (stencil brush)

The grapes were stamped using the new Archival Basic Black ink.  Then using a blinder pin and ink pads I colored the image in.  After the image was colored I decided to fussy cut the image out.  Then I added this to the layers of Old Olive and Lost Lagoon.

The second version of this card I decided to simple things up a bit and just added the fussy cut grapes to the card base.


I love both cards and how they show off the grapes!

Witch one do you like the best?

I would love to know.

Here is the supply list:
