Tractor

I'm a Kansas farm kid and there's nothing like tractor and wheat to bring memories of home back to me. My dad was a farmer and our farm wasn't big but it took care of us and he took care of it. He was proud of working the land and he worked hard. We had a tractor similar to this (although ours were always red...*grin*). But, I was in a green mood and wanted to play with distress inks as a coloring medium. I used daubers and q-tips as well as several colors or green, grey and amber.


This digi stamp set is called Tractor Digital Stamp Download.

You can find it on the Pickled Potpourri Etsy shop here:

I love it for several reasons. Not only does it have the memory factor but it's also perfect for making masculine cards, cards for farmers, sympathy cards for rural friends and homespun cards.


Here's another version of the tractor, this time colored with copics C2, C5, G12 and G28. This tractor image was printed, colored and popped up on some awesome digital paper that is also available on Etsy. It's called Stained Glass Medley Digital Papers Download! I love how this sheet looks like farmland from an aerial view. This would be a super birthday card, get well card or an awesome notecard set, don't you think?!!

Sew Fun!

Happy New Year!! It's 2019 and with a new year comes some exciting new changes for Pickled Potpourri Designs. We're on Etsy now and there are some awesome new and classic digital stamp sets and papers for you to check out!

I don't know about you but I get stuck on a coloring medium and then can't seem to let it go for a while. I'm currently still obsessed with Prismacolor pencils so it's another month with colored pencil goodness on the cards below.


This first card is from the Pickled Potpourri Designs  digital stamp set - Sew Fun! I was immediately drawn to this sweet little mouse sewing on a pincushion. How darling! The whole set is just as cute as it can be. You could make a fun box card with all the parts or you could decorate up a composition journal for a sewing friend to take notes or so many great options.

And, this sweet little mouse image is layered on the oh, so lovely and fabulous Juliette digital papers download. I can't tell you how much I LOVE this paper and to have it available to print on demand... be still my heart!

You may have noticed that I didn't post in December. As with all of you it was a busy and fun time with friends and family and parties and appointments and shopping and baking and... :) So, I saved my Christmas image to get a start on cards for 2019. To be honest with you, I didn't get any cards made to send at Christmas so may wait and do Groundhog's day or St. Patty's day or something silly. :)

But, back to the card, this lovely candle collage image just made me happy and it colored beautifully as it's got lovely shading already in the drawing. I just accented it with a bit of color.


This is from the Christmas Candle digi set. I kept the background simple so the image would be the focus. Such a lovely set.
