Food, glorious food

It's Kathy's turn to set the dare over at DCM this week and she's asked for cards featuring food. As it happens I just discovered that a friend had an op yesterday and is expecting to be home tomorrow so I needed a 'hope you soon feel better' kind of card. A bunch of grapes seemed like a classic subject for that!

I found a photo of a grape vine (you wouldn't believe how many of those we have in our collection!) and traced a leaf in RoboMaster then cut out a load of little circles, a frame and a wiggly bit for a tendril. I cut them all from plain card and then dabbed inkpads over them - leaf in two shades of green and grapes in two shades of purple. I used an embossing tool to 'draw' the leaf veins. A few grapes are coated with clear embossing powder and the frame is painted with gold acrylic and has a few random gold sparkle EP highlights.

Didn't think I was going to get time to craft today but if a poorly friend needs a card then you just have a squeeze it in, don't you?

You're very inventive, and definitely more skilled with the Robo than I am with mine! Lovely card, bound to cheer your friend up. x

Your design is classic, Beautiful colours and I'm sure your friend will love it!..
I really love how you've allowed the grapes and vine to spill out of the circle frame.. Beautiful work!

Great card, I love the idea and well done on using robomaster so well. Me and my Robo have some creative differences which we are struggling to overcome together.

hope your friend gets well soon.

Hi I really like your food card. Such a great design.

You asked about my pear stamp on my blog and it was made by PSX in 1999. PSX has sold and I don't know what became of their designs.

Thank you for visiting my blog! :)
