SSIC #29 Watercolor Challenge with Market Fresh Stamps

Happy Wednesday! Lots of Stampin’ Up! demonstrators are converging on Salt Lake City today because the last annual convention (at least in its current form) starts tomorrow. Boy do I wish I could join them, but it just wasn’t in the cards for me this year. Instead, I’m hosting a Paper Pumpkin social tomorrow, and I’ll be watching the live streaming.  Anyways….today, i’m sharing a card that I made for my brother’s birthday this week. He has recently discovered that he loves gardening, so I thought this was appropriate.  Also, this card falls right in line with the SSIC #29 Watercolor Challenge. Feel free to click on the challenge image for a link to the Facebook group that hosts this challenge.

As always, you can find a complete supply list at the bottom of this post! I stamped the lettuce in Mossy Meadow ink on watercolor paper, and I used my aqua painters and Old Olive ink for the inside. I purposefully didn’t use staz-on ink, because I wanted the dark green to bleed into the image and give the lettuce a bit more shading and dimension.

On the inside, I simply used my markers to ink up some strawberries and grapes from the Market Fresh stamp set, and I used the Happy Birthday from Guy Greetings for the sentiment.
