Strawberry field

This is the finished card I started with yesterday’s tutorial on the blackboard technique.  It’s for next week’s birthday of my SIL, who grows strawberries and has generously shared with us her excess plants.  We planted them last year, so this year I’m hoping for (planning on!) a good crop.

Stamps: Tart & Tangy, Rough Type*

Ink:  Whisper White Craft, Basic Black

Paper:  Garden Green, Basic Black, Whisper White

Other:  Watercolor Pencils, Signo Gel Pen, Eyelet Border Punch, Metal Edge Tag, Earth Elements Brad (Ruby Red), Stampin’ Dimensionals

*Summer Mini Catalog — and part of the May special!

  1. So fun! I love this technique. And it looks fabulous with this image. The little eyelet scalloped edge is the perfect accent. Almost looks like a piece of lace. How nice that your SIL shares her strawberries with you! I {love} strawberries. I can’t get enough of them right now. They are at their sweetest right now in CA.

  2. How pretty! Bet she loves it like y’all love the strawberry plants. . . . 🙂

    I was wondering where you were going with your last post – this card is wonderful! Our strawberries (and blueberries) are in full production. I LOVE berries, and I’m sure your SIL will love this card. TFS!

    debra,
    the plants need plenty of sun and moisture, in drier summer months,my sister water her plants daily. Also, may need if a plant needs a plant curtain if the sun gets to hot in the summer. I think it takes one or two years to get fruit, keep me posted, remember the advice is what you paid for!! 🙂
