Lovin' The Carrot Man

This week the Stampotique Challege #SDC 181 is to Use Citrus Colors. Isn't Carrot a cutie! He is colored using the pencil over marker technique. Either I was thinking strawberries, watermelon and cherries are citrus, or..........this is more better, .....it's Blood Orange red!!! Whatever it is, I had fun making it, and hope you like my little ATC.



I thought my background came out interesting.  I used 2 colors of green distress
inks, threw on some water drops and rolled it around making a pattern of sorts.  Then I stamped with yellow paint and clear embossed that to make a somewhat textured bg.  I used a white pen to follow the drip lines and spots.  The hearts and Carrot are mounted on pop ups.  He sends you serious hugs today.
