Ok, THIS is my favorite recipe box! LOL! I can't lie, I love all of them! Each are unique and different! This one is just like that! I started out by looking at kitchen wallpaper (where the beans came from), and then I got the idea that I wanted REAL looking vegetables to decorate the top. And when I can't find a stamp, I create the images myself. So, all the vegetables are hand drawn by me, and colored to imitate real vegetables! I think the radishes are my favorite, w/ the carrots and eggplant a close second! Corn is really hard to draw! All those kernels!
The pea pods are from the MFT set Alpha Dots. Don't they look just like little peas?!
Front! When I was looking at the wallpaper, there was a sample that had the grid but it had ivy on it. I felt that if I put that on here, then my beans would get lost! So, I created my own grid w/ Creamy Caramel ink, strips of paper, and vanilla cardstock.
closeup of the top. I used a Copic for the lines on the carrots. I used a white gel pen for the veins on the leaves of the radishes. All the other colors used are SU! and I used a sponge for all of it.

Here's a look at the inside. Not as exciting as the outside!
And a last view of the top as a whole.
Whomever wins this, I hope you enjoy it! I thoroughly enjoyed making this!
