StampinB challenge #58-To celebrate International No Diet Day being in the month of May, we are to make a card with fruit or beverage. I chose this digital image of yummy strawberries and printed twice on watercolor paper, colored and popped the berries. Shaded my white blooms to make them pop out as they are colored in white.
Printed on watercolor paper and cut with Labels Three die and layered on top of a Shapeabilities Pendants Contemporary Hearts. Under that is the Borderabilities Fresh Fruit Border I ordered from Markie's Finest Papers. I made the background doing Letterpress with Impressabilities technique. That was fun! Added ribbon and brads and I'm finished.
Hope you'll join us in this week's challenge, using the keyword StampinB.
