Finally Sons Birthday Project

Well I finally finished what started as a card for my eldest sons birthday,I said last month had everything ready-stamps inks and idea (as he grows veggies and tomatoes so thought these stamps were perfect)but no mojo-well let me start!!!

First of all I thought ooh a tri card stamped everything and stuck down but hadn't left a little inbetween to allow for depth-cut the pieces out and decided to make a hanging but made a mess of that so all stuck down onto black cardstock and into a frame I bought for 50p from a charity shop but we don't need to tell him that ssshhhh.No cardstock long enough so had to use washi tape to hide the join which looked odd so used some more in between the first two cards too.

Finally got it framed and thought oops should have took all the pics before framing so out they came again!!!

I smooshed the cardstock with oxide inks,stencils from Creative expressions and Artisan Designs.All stamps from AALL& CREATE which were stamped twice and layered after colouring with promarkers.Garden tools were heat embossed onto matt mirri card,butterfly sticker/Ladybird and metal snail from stash.The flower pots were a digi image from Patties Creations and fussy cut,script stamp was used and my fave texture stamp round borders.

Just seen the final para of your post, that was my Mum's tippled and if we were visiting when the children were small she used to put in a mug, keep it under the sink and tell them it was gravy!
