Today's dare over on Daring Cardmakers is to use fruit on your project. I just got a new stamp set called "Fruit Basket" so the timing is perfect! My only problem was deciding which fruit since they're all lovely! (ETA - on revisiting the DCM blog to leave the link to this, I see Jo has added her sample and we've picked the same saying, how funny!).
I decided to make a "pick me up" card for somebody having a difficult time of it at the moment using the old saying "When life gives you lemons... make lemonade!" combining the DCM dare with the current "clean and simple" challenge on SCS which is a sketch.
I computer generated the sentiment (fonts are Baskerville Old Face and Lainie Day Script) and the lemons are coloured with Copics so this was a quick card (other than the fact I can dither for hours when trying to choose fonts!).
Stamps: Fruit Basket (Shady Tree Studio at Cornish Heritage Farms).
Ink: Brilliance by Tsukineko (Graphite Black)
Paper: Yellow (Bazzill), smooth white and Epic Laid Black (Prism)
Computer and printer
Classic Oval Nestabilities by Spellbinder
Nail art gems
Thanks for stopping by - hope your day is more lemonade than lemons! I'm hoping mine will be as I'm entering this in the Charmed Cards blog candy!
