Good morning! Time for a new Simon Says Challenge and the perfect excuse to keep playing and experimenting with my new and much adored distress inks. It took them a month to arrive, but the wait (and the awful customs troubles I had) was so worth it! They're probably the most versatile supply I own by now, along with my beloved patterned papers. Ok, and a few stamp sets too. A mum could never choose between her children, could she? Me, I only have a child, so I get to choose between my supplies, haha. Right, excuse my babblings, it's really cold here and that's affecting my brain. Freezing it, actually.
This week's challenge is about summer fruits. Perfect to make me long for sunny days *insert some crying here if you wish*: you can create something with summer fruits or use summer fruits colors. I decided to do both ;)
For the card base I cut a circle with my compass cutter and then scored the limit between the peel and the juicy fruit. I've been thinking about getting the Coluzzle for this kind of things. Do you guys recommend it? Raves? Rants? Tips? Thank you!
Next I used a mask to add the color with distress inks. And finally I wasn't sure about the seeds: hand-drawing it? dark patterned paper? I browsed in my stamps stash and came across a Hero Arts cute and solid little butterfly. It involved some paper piecing, which you know I love. And finally,
added the sentiment and the pink metal
Hope you like it! And thanks for stopping by!
