Simon Says Summer Fruits or Fruity Colours :-)

It's time for a new theme on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge This week we are asking for 'Summer Fruits or Fruity Colours' We realise that some of you may not have any fruity stamps/images to use so fruity colours are fine too :-)

As you can see I used a new Summer Tilda image, they are flying across the pond on their way onto the shelves at Simon Says Stamp Store at this very moment !! I will let you all know as soon as they arrive :-)

The images were coloured with copics and I paper tole'd everything !! This is an 8 inch square card,, my first and maybe my last !! It took me ages to make !! :-)

The papers are HOTP and DCWV I used the last bit of my plain brown cardstock !!! :-( and whitewash coredinations that I placed in a cuttlebug folder that had been coloured with Rocket Red Brilliance ink and sent through to give a depressed image ! I really love this technique.

The butterflies are from the Simon Says Clear Stamps Butterfly BUTTERFLIES Exclusive Set!.

I followed Mina's fabulous sketch on the Just Magnolia Challenge
isn't is a lovely sketch !! I will make another smaller card using this one :-)

I am entering this in the Stamping for the Weekend Challenge whose theme is 'Strawberries Dipped in Chocolate' and also the Cupcake Craft Challenge whose theme is Blossoms and butterflies

Thanks for looking I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

Also don't forget to visit the blogs of the DT and see the fabby creations that they have made too ,,, they're sensational !!! :-) Heidi is giving away a $25 shopping spree + free shipping AND you jnust might find some candy somewhere if you look ,,,, :-)
