Stamp and Create Spotlight - Food week 2

This is my product spotlight for Stamp and Create.

I have used Lynette Collecting her vegetables by Sarah Kay to cover a dairy for 2011 for my Step Mum. She loves her gardening so this image seemed ideal for the front cover. I wanted to keep it flat as I will be covering it in clear plastic to keep it from wear and tear, but I knew it would not photograph easily if I added it now. The back is also decorated but I will show you that later in the week. The papers are the gorgeous Capella from Basic Grey. The flower is from Prima, and I have added a spacer and brad, the small brown brads are added to the top piece of the diary. I have used Cluny lace and brown grosgrain ribbon in the centre to give defination to the two papers. The image has been cut with nestibilities labels 8 and the circle sentiment with circles large and small. The image has been coloured in distressed inks.

challenges -

Basic Grey - 4 embellishments (flower, brad, spacer, counted ribbon and lace as one as it is types), 3 papers, 1 image and 1 sentiment.
Allsorts - monocrome.
