Hi all :-) thanks for all your fabulous entries to our ‘Man’s challenge ,, we know that making things for the men in our lives fills us with dread ,, lol ,,, but many of you rose to the challenge :-)
This week we are asking you all to GET FRUITY !! ,, Wimbledon is just around the corner and all the strawberries are ripening ,,, yum !! :-)
This is the photo that we used for our inspiration ,, oohh I feel a fruit salad coming on ,,,,, :-)
I used a 12x12 Whitewash Core-dinations piece of card for the base and punched the edges with a Martha Stuart Pansy border punch. For the handle I embossed with a Swiss Dots folder and lightly sanded the raised bits. The papers are Cherry Cobbler SU card and My Minds Eye (MME) Life of the Party Papers . I used my Copics Air Brush to spray the Prima Alabaster flower with RV34 ink . I then sprayed it with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer mist. I finished with a gingham bow and a punnet of yummy fresh strawberries :-)
Next up is a card I made using my very cute House Mouse Berried stamp. I coloured with Copics and added Star Dust Stickles here and there and I lightly inked the edges with Stormy Sky Distress Ink. The papers are from the same MME paper pad. I added a MS Scalloped heart punch and Monarch butterfly, some more gingham ribbon a strawberry charm and a few Robins Nest Dew Drops.
Thanks for looking :-) The DT have made some gorgeous creations for your inspiration so please pop on over to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge to see them :-)
