FTTC164– Fruitiful Challenge



Hello and happy Tuesday eveyrone!

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC164)!! Mona is challenging us to be “Fruitiful” - Create a project featuring some kind of fruit as your focal image. Please visit Flourishes blog for more information about the challenge.



There are many fruit stamps to choose from but I decided to ink Blueberries from Berry Sweet set. I stamped the image with Memento tuxedo black on classic white cardstock and colored with Copic markers. Then I sponged the circle mat with Distress Ink shabby shatters using using Ink Blending tool and Foam. The frame was created with Spellbinders Lacey Circles and layered on the mat that was created with Fancy Tag 3 die. The card was created with the classic white cardstock, colored cardstock and Bo Bunny Country Garden designer papers. The sentiment was stamped on the label that was cut out with the die from Tailor-Made Classic Keyhole Die. To finish off, the card was embellished with May Arts Iridescent Ribbon with vintage brad and aqua rhinestones.
