Welcome to the Royal Blog Tour! I am happy to show you some projects made using the brand new Herb Expressions set! I immediately fell in love with this set when I got my catalog. I love the simple line drawings and the sentiments that come in this set.
When you see this set in the catalog you will notice that the names of the herbs are attached to the stamp. Some people have cut them apart from the image and mounted them to the side of the wood block. Mine are all one piece still but I have "ways" so that I don't have to stamp the words with the image. For today's cards I used my markers. When you use your markers you are in control of what gets colored. For the top card, I used my Always Artichoke and Elegant Eggplant markers. For the bottom card I used my Old Olive and Elegant Eggplant markers.
For the top card I used an old sketch that I found somewhere. But for the bottom card I used a card from the catalog. Can you guess which one? I will tell you that the card uses the same colors but a different stamp set. And I believe that the card in the catalog is a different size.
Now, if you know me at all, then you know how much I LOVE to use dimensionals. Well, for this second card I didn't use any dimensionals! Gasp!! But I think that this card is one of my very favorites. I just love how it turned out.
Well, that's it for me. I will not be posting now until Wednesday. Then I will have some more samples for you with this set. So now I will send you on to the next stop in the tour. Enjoy your tour!
