Three Peas In The Pods

Hello everyone and welcome to the weekend.  It's been a while since I've participated in a Paper Smooches Sparks challenge.  Since one of my goals for 2013 is to try and participate in more challenges, as my migraines allow, I decided this week's Anything Goes theme would be a good place to start.
I pulled out one of my favorite PS stamp sets, Vegtastic, along with some Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety designer paper and got to work.  After stamping my images in memento tuxedo black ink onto white card stock and coloring with prismacolor markers, I stippled some Tim Holtz tumbled glass and tattered rose distress inks around the colored images to help soften the white spaces a bit.  Then after cutting out the additional heart and pea pod images I had stamped onto scrap paper, I popped those up on dimensionals and micro pop dots before adding the entire layered image over three scalloped borders.  Since I didn't have any brads matching my designer paper or card stock, I made my own by punching some small circles and adding them using a Martha Stewart 2-way glue pen.
Thanks for stopping by today.  Have a great weekend.
