Every year on June 1st, a magical date here, I plant my garden. That garden usually includes at least six to ten varieties of tomatoes, mostly Heirlooms, all of which are reflected in the colors found in this ink pad. Memento's Peanut Brittle, Morocco, Love Letters, Espresso Truffle and Bamboo Leaves are a beautiful combination of colors, just like my tomatoes. I actually made several cards using my new ink pad but the one for today is my favorite.
This card starts with a 4" by 6" piece of 90 lb. watercolor paper to which I have applied a light coating of gesso. With a little help from my heat gun the gesso dries pretty quickly. Next I used a brayer to apply ink from the new Tomato Vine pad. Kaleidacolor's innovative sliding palette clicks together when in use and then apart to keep the colors from bleeding together when not in use. Pretty clever!
