Garden Goodness with two-tone tomatoes


I’m really not into Valentine’s Day projects. Hearts, flowers, soppy sayings and all that pink and red just turn me off. If you’re like me and want something a little quirky, how about sending a card made with Garden Goodness?

Why? Because tomatoes are also known as “love apples”, thanks to the French seeing their heart-like shape and assuming this must mean they have aphrodisiac qualities! They called them “pommes d’amour”! 🍅❤️

What do you think? Do tomatoes put you in the mood for luuurrrve?

To get the two-tone toms, first ink up with an orange ink (Pumpkin Pie used here), then sponge on top with a red ink (I used Merry Merlot because this was one of my Stampy Buffet projects and my other red inks were busy elsewhere).
