Fruity

Hello again! This is my second post today, so please scroll down for my CASE Study card if you missed it.

I was feeling flat out all day, (with Zuzia being especially 'entertaining'...) but in belief that an exercised mojo is a fit mojo, I sat down to a card this afternoon. And like it often would turn out, I'm loving the results ^^
I might even stamp some more tonight...

This card is for FTTC164, with a fruit theme. I also used the fabulous SSSC156 sketch, and the colours of cQc#132.



I coloured the peaches, from Flourishes Peaches & Cherries set, with Copics (YR01, YR65, YR24, YR27 for he fruit, and YG99/YG95/YG93/YG91 for the leaves), die cut with Spellbinders™ S4-246 Labels Eleven and matted with S4-190 Labels Four. The patterned paper comes from Cosmo Cricket's Baby Jane mini deck.

You can see below, how I applied some Glossy Accents, to imitate the dew drops.

By the way, that's one thing I love about clear stamps - I can bend them slightly to suit my design. It works perfectly when I'm stamping the sentiments in banners, and here I thought it would make the label look like taken from a seed packet.
See you later, peeps :)

  15. I love that you can bend clear stamp sentiments or borders. It looks marvelous on shaped layers. Your card is gorgeous. Love the splashes of "water" you added to the peaches.
