You're Sweet


I'm stopping in real quick to share a card I made for Pinkfresh Studio's June Challenge! I actually made this earlier in the month, but just realized the end of the month is almost here and I really needed to get it posted!! The challenge is bows or particular color palette. You can check out the challenge here!

I really wanted to use the Fruitastic stamp set and even though the colors are not fruit colors, I thought it would be a nice challenge to see if they would work with these colors. So I matched the colors as best as I could to several inks I have.

To start I stamped and die cut all the fruits in the set, I realized that it would not be enough to make my fruit wreath. So I stamped and die cut another set.

Next, I used a Kite Stencil - Torn Edges and used the same light pink, yellow and blue inks that I used for my fruit as my watercolors. I was careful to not use too much water as I didn't want the water to run under the stencil and loose the torn edge look.

When that was dry I added it to a white card base and then started arranging the fruit in a wreath. I adhered the fruit to the card, except for a four of the smallest fruits, I added those with foam tape. Last I stamped the You're Sweet sentiment to the center of the wreath!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!
