This week's challenge over at Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog is Let's get Fruity. I love to create bright summery cards so fruit fits right in!
I started by trimming my pattern paper then stamping the border in Green Hills shadow ink. I stamped my strawberries on the pattern paper panel before adding some twine. I knew I was going to fussy cut the strawberries (duh! I fussy cut everything, it's a disease!!) but I wanted the stems to show. Stamping on the paper and adhering your cut out piece on top is an easy way to preserve those more delicate parts of your stamp.
I stamped the strawberry twice on white paper, colored with copics and trimmed them out. I adhered the first strawberry with one layer of dimensional adhesive. To add some more dimension I added the second strawberry with two layers of dimensional adhesive. I wanted the "sweeter" to pop on the card so I traced around it with the lightest copic color I used to color the strawberries. Once I trimmed the sentiment into a banner I added it with even more dimensional adhesive.
Thanks for stopping by my "sweet" friends! hehehehe
