Vera Lane Studio: Smarty Plants


Happy May Day!
Today is my Vera Lane Studio DT day. 
The artist, Janet, has a new digi set release today called 'Smarty Plants'. There is a cute little girl (with or without a hat), a garden fence and some veggies, along with a sentiment.

Here is my project:

I coloured the images with Copic markers and fussy cut them. The grass is from the 'Maui' set and the little bird is from 'Bright Day'. The background is stamped with one of Janet's stencils from AALL & Create using Distress Oxides. I added some stamping and doodled a border.

Here's a close up of the little gardener:

And here are the veggies by the fence:

That's all for now.

I hope you'll come along and play on Vera Lane. It's such a friendly, fun place to be!
