Saturday Market


Sorry for the long absence! I have been working diligently on my Saturday Market inventory. I wanted to share some cards I made with a wonderful Fred She Said digital stamp. The dahlia collection offers both the pointy dahlias and the rounded dahlias. These were so much fun to work with. I used Copic markers on some, Prismas and OMS on others and even printed them out on DP for a quick easy 3-D flower.
The farmers market presented a new dilemma for me. I am so used to adding tons of detail extras on my cards to sell on Ebay. I had to tone my cards way down to make an affordable market type card. While still sturdy, my cards use fewer layers and only one area of stitching.
Let me know what you think!

Terrific "simple" cards, Peg. I really like the flower digi stamps from Fred, She Said. I saw the sample True made the other day and it pretty much convinced me that I have to purchase at least one flower set. I am always looking for new ways to make flowers. Thanks for the inspiration!
