ID: MC Aug/12 - Lemonade - Take Time card
size: 5"w x 7"h

Created: Aug 3, 2012

One of the challenges called for black & white + 1 color, and another called for fruit, and one called for summer and another for clean & simple... and this is what came of them

I'm using a great quote stamp from Quietfire Design which you may think is only for Xmas, but think about it, shouldn't we be taking time to delight in the joys of every season...

I used this Cuttlebug "Art Deco" embossing folder and my trust mallet since the folder is only a 4 x 6 and my card is a 5 x 7... so hammered the corner sections, moved the folder in the middle for that little middle detail and used my Scor-It board for a couple vertical lines.

Cut a mask for the lemons and lemon slice and created a mask for the glass then sponged Distress "Black Soot" over the design and my masked areas. Sponged a bit of Squeezed Lemonade to tone down the black. Stamped my lemons and lemon slice. Drew in lines for my glass with a Zig Writer and colored with watercolor pencils.

Stamped the quote with Versafine "Black Onyx".

Started writing my word "Lemonade" with a Pilot Parallel Pen and if you look closely, you'll see the "L" bled. I watched it spread.... I thought I'd then just write the word on a separate paper and adhere it to the card, but that would obliterate part of my glass... So pulled out a black marker - it was slightly larger than I wanted, but c'est la vie, fixed up the L" as best I could and continued with the rest of the word. Love this style of lettering. Something I created a month or so ago from seeing a sample that  only had 5 letters of the alphabet in it.
