I just had to play in Flourishes Farm Fresh Challenge
-FLLCJUL11. They want to see fruits or veggies as the focal point. This is a pre-release challenge and someone will win the entire July release. How I would love to be that very fortunate person.
I thought I had a Flourishes fruit or veggie stamp but couldn't find one. I am using one for the sentiment that is in their Humming Along set. The fruit is Rubber Stampede if I am not mistaken. I searched for it online and never found it. I have no name as I think it is from ebay. If anyone knows and will let me know, I'll post it. I am just guessing it is peaches..sure what it looked like to me so I got out my Copics and went with peach colors.
My sketch was from the QFTD challenge #68 on Splitcoaststampers. The Queen this week is Roxie aka Rox71. This is the card
I cased. I tried to stay true to her sketch but did not stamp my black and white border. My sis had given me this pretty Recollections chipboard border and I thought it would be perfect. My border punch is by EK Success and is called English Ivy. Matted and popped up my image.
Hope I'm not taking liberties by entering this into Speedy the Cat's Friends
challenge #63. It is to use a die cut as a background mat OR make your own
. I cut my own mat because my image was large and I didn't have time to do an out of the box. Plus, I used a punch which I hope counts. If not, throw 'er out. LOL
For Your Inspiration
challenge #9 gave us this beautiful photo to draw inspiration from. Wow! It is beautiful and I love the oranges and so many colors in the stained glass. I am using the black and green from the stained glass and all the beautiful oranges, plus the white from the sky.
