I was in the mood to do some ink blending and this fruit collection (Create a Smile Fruit Salad) was calling to me. This is such a fun summery stamp set and I wanted bright bold colors.
I started by embossing 5 fruit images and then used distress inks to blend from pink (watermelon) to orange, yellow (lemons and bananas) and ended with green for a nice citrusy lime. I wanted contrast so I mounted the fruit band on white cardstock then drew two black Sharpie lines to frame the colors. Lastly, I mounted the card top on a black base.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
TGIF Summer Inspiration Challenge which features a photo of a bright Lemonade Stand for inspiration. I went with the bright colors and citrus theme.
Addicted to Stamps Make Your Mark Challenge so make your mark and play along.
