Vegetable and Leaf prints on card

Here are the cards with vegetable and leaf prints which i tried long back.
The first one is using ladies finger and black color

This one using potatoes and long shaped leaf. The potato is cut into slits and then applied crimson red color and for leaf i have used sap green.


And these flowers are made using onion and hibiscus leaves.


Beans are used to make these flowers and leaves.


Again i have used hibiscus leaves but of bigger size with sap green color.


For this card i have capsicum.


And this is bitter karela (bitter guard).

Thanx for looking!!!!

Floral bouquet

I enjoyed coloring this card after a busy day. First I heat embossed the stamped image with gold embossing powder and used zig clean color real brush pens for coloring.  Finished my card by adding clear sequins from Pretty pink posh.
I followed the Freshly made sketches.  Also linking this card to Addicted to stamps and more challenge
Happy coloring!!
