ID: MC Aug 11 - Flourishes Fruit - Raspberry Thanks card
4"w x 8.5"h

Created: August 10, 2011

This week on Timeless Tuesday over at Flourishes the theme is Be Fruitful. You need to create a card with fruit on it, be it a stamp, background paper or whatever. You can not combine it with any other challenge. and then you'll be in the running to win about $60 worth of prizes. And if you use Flourishes stamps, you'll have a double chance. So keeping my fingers crossed.

I used the Berry Sweet set #104 for this card.

I'm also using one of the "Thanks" sentiment stamp from Quietfire Design

I made a mask of the large raspberry sprig, then started stamping down the side, masking areas as I went. I used Versafine Black onyx on white cardstock. I colored using mainly Winsor & Newton watercolors. The side edge of blue is also the watercolors.

I die cut the edge with Tim's Sizzix on the edge die "Brackets". I then used Sizzix embossing Folder Raspberry and my hard rubber mallet.

I stamped the Flourishes sentiment with the black. adhered this panel to a deep red main card. I stamped the Thanks sentiment with the black on a separate piece of white cardstock, clear embossed it, sponged Distress Aged Mahogany around the edges and trimmed it down.
