The Farm Fresh Challenge

Farm-Fresh-Challenge-Graphic-300x256
Flourishes has a new challenge to kick off the July release-join us for the Farm Fresh Challenge! Use any fruit or vegetable to represent farm fresh to you.
I’ve been chowing down on raspberries and peaches and blueberries, and strawberries…I knew one of those was going to be my focus image. So, I chose the raspberry image from Berry Sweet and used the seed packet from Seeds of Friendship.

The image is stamped on Flourishes Classic White card stock and colored with Copic markers and shaded with Prismacolor Pencils and Versa Magic ink in Wheat. I cut out the seed packet image and mounted the panel on patterned paper from Lemonade by Basic Grey. I just added a black mat and a skewer to make it a sign.

Which was perfect to announce my farm fresh raspberries. But now they are gone. Yum!
Not long from now, juicy and fresh produce will start to sprout and find its way to farmer's markets in every corner of America. Let's capture some farm freshness on our cards or creations. Use fruit or veggies as a focus! FLLCJUL11. Deadline is July 15th at 5 PM Eastern. Check out The Farm Fresh Challenge and play along! You have the chance to win all three new releases for July!
Now check out all the designers creations for your farm fresh inspiration!
