Catered Crop and Welcome to 10 new Members

Oh, my goodness - I have 10, yes TEN new members on my blog - well the secret is they are all part of the fantastic Simply Create Too design team. But new members are new members and need to be greeted accordingly!

Esperite - Lynne
Diane  - the owner and team leader


Her is my welcome picture to all of you:


This artwork is by Walton Ford, an American artist born  1960, who makes paintings and prints in the style of Audubon's naturalist illustrations. A couple of years ago the Brooklyn Museum had an exhibit about him and this was my favorite picture. I hope you like it as much as I do.

Embossing is the challenge at Catered Crops - and what theme is better than Mothers Day right now?





I used a Sizzix embossing folder, sponged it with yellow ink, added some orange and went over the raised stripes with an orange Gelato stick. The die cut letters are Papertrey Block alphabet die and the little words are from Papertrey - Mixed Messages

So sunny card! I have a question about gelatos ( if you don't mind-or do mind?:) English is not my native language, I'm Ukrainian, always confused with this phrase)
Well, the question. I'm hesitating trying to decide if I need gelatos. Even being able to purchase the whole set twice cheaper it's still money. When I watch all these wonderful tutorial of how to use them I want them! But then I think - I have watercolors, prismacolors, mists, distress stains, inks, paints and reinkers. So technically I can recreate all these gelatos techniques with supplies I already have in stash. But maybe I miss smth? Maybe these gelatos have some qualities another supplies don't ?
I will appreciate your answer :)
Hugs, Sveta.

Oh la la, gleich zehn! Da gratuliere ich aber sehr herzlich!!
Ein sehr tolles Begr├╝├čungsfoto hast du ausgesucht!
Sowohl die Zeichnung als auch diese Fiesenoptik finde ich sehr interessant. Auch das satte gelb und die tollen Farbnuancen deiner Karte gefallen mir ausgezeichnet gut!
