FTTC73 – All About Fruits!

 

SONY DSC

 

Hello everyone~

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC73) ! It is the last Tuesday of the month so we have a challenge host.  This month's host is Cindy Coutts.  Cindy is giving us a fruit inspired challenge.  You can actually create a card with fruits,  use fruity colors, or be inspired by fruit shapes.  It will be  a cool and refreshing sweet treat whichever choice you decide. We look forward to seeing what you create.

Flourishes carries wonderful selections of Fruits stamps and I looked over all my stamps and decided to use the Life, Love and Lemons set. I stamped the big lemon branch image randomly just the top and bottom part on the classic white cardstock. Then I colored them with Copic markers (I used mainly Sunflower collection and Evergreen collection). I also stamped the same image, colored with Copic markers, and used as a focal piece. The designer paper from Basic Gray Origin was used for the middle mat and I stamped the sentiment on it. For the accent, the olive scalloped edge ribbon were used as borders and embellishment.
