A soy mocha and a buttcrack...

Ever feel like this? While I'm waiting for my Starbucks to kick in so I can actually do something productive today, I thought I'd share this card I made with my "Harvest Moon" stamp from Hambo.

The herbs are from an old SU set called "Sweet Herbs" that I picked up a craft sale last year. I colored them in with my Copics and added some Stickles for a little shimmer.

The gardner was stamped out and colored separately and I paper pieced the shirt to match the background paper. I cut out the image and popped it up on dimensionals in front of the herbs. I added some Crackle medium (no pun intended) to the knee pad under the gardner to add a little texture. The card base is SU close to cocoa with river rock and chocolate chip as matting.

What a great use for that gardener! I have that same herb set -- will have to give this a try sometime. Love all the paper piecing and the "crack"le! Great job - thanks for sharing! :)
