Gifts for a Gardener

been working on collecting garden related images all winter more or less. and then started stamping them and coloring them with Prisma Pencils here and there. This is a look at what has been done so far. This took me forever to do this... this photo was shot with two over head lights on and two ott lights on the table on in broad daylight. (I'm going blind) but, maybe so is my Camera... when you color with your nose two inches above the image it really tells you how little light there really is. I wanted to find some old canning jars with the screw on one piece lids to put these in, but, couldn't find any big enough. so they are inside of 6inch wide cello baggies from SU and then there is a 6X4 piece of scrap my minds eye pp on the top. then just punched a hole for the too big to fit in the package tag to tie on the outside. My thoughts about this was that every single person i know who grows a garden grows too much... so maybe these could get tied onto food gifts?? Made a bunch for DH that I am thinking i would be the person to tie them on the food... and i probably wont color the next batch, just distress the tags and stamp them. most of the images are highly detailed ( IE a pain to color) *Ü* Hopefully they will be well received.
