Introducing… Farmer’s Market!

Welcome to the first day of the Power Poppy sneak peeks for August!  The next five days are going to be filled with all kinds of stampy scents and sounds of Summer and Autumn.  Our first stamp set up is… “Farmer’s Market”.

Marcella says: “Inspired by the bounty of the local market - the freshness of our earth's gifts, the saturated colors, the rustic baskets.... I think there is something really dear about the market that creates a coziness and sense of community. Folks standing in line to pick out the perfect heirloom tomato, or the newest variety of colourful cauliflower (did you know it comes in orange and purple and bright green, not just white?) The bounty we carry home in our arms - some of us wondering..."What the heck am I going to do with all of this?" but we buy it anyway!

Doesn't Marcella’s description make your mouth water and your nose smell those imaginary Autumn fruits and veggies?  It sure does to me!

Now, let’s check out my card creation for today’s reveal…

I couldn’t resist using this amazing veggie bounty for my first card.  I swear I used at least 60 different Copics to colour and shade my image.  It was a sheer delight to colour!

I coloured my beets like they were of the Golden and Pink varieties.

I coloured my greens as if they were Swiss Chard.

I also coloured my tomatoes as if they were of the colourful heirloom varieties.  Did you know they had tomato varieties stripped like zebras?  Cool!

Nothing says delicious like colourful veggies on your plate…

Have a gander at what the rest of the Bloom Brigaders have done with these tasty images…
