play with your food: artichoke stamped tote







Another fun project that Anne and I tackled during our crafting night, inspired by a recent fruit + veggie stamping post by A Beautiful Mess. I picked up a 3-pack of natural canvas tote bags a while ago to design some cute carry-alls. They were a bit smaller than I’d hoped, but they’re perfect as a lunch bag or for carrying my planner and a couple of notebooks back and forth from the shop.

For some reason, my artichoke didn’t look a thing like Elsie’s, but I really like the way the pattern turned out!

    Reminds me of some pretty stationery Martha Stewart created using the head of a Treviso radicchio. It yielded a rose-like print.

    it doesn’t look like hers because they didn’t picture one stamped with an artichoke. Only celery and apple ;) But I really like the artichoke! So pretty :)

      If you check out the photos toward the middle of her post, there’s one little artichoke shot :)

        hum, maybe I am blind. I went and looked again and only see celery. I saw an artichoke in the top photo…but only celery with paint on it. Am I totally missing it?? ha! What color paint is on it?
