Finally had some me time on Sunday and so after a long drought of not making cards I found I had lots of inspiration! I decided to play with the SU set Infinite Goodness (retired) and after stamping the pear in Stazon I masked it so that I could add the leaves & fruit stamp. I then coloured the images (both cards) with Prisma Coloured Pencils and blended with turpenoid (gamsol). For the Seasons Greetings (Many Merry Messages) card above, I left the colours quite feint & after trimming the image I mounted it on Riding Hood Red cardstock and stamped the senitment also in Riding Hood Red. Overall a reasonably quick & easy card. I then made the birthday card (Happy Birthday from Occasional Greetings), only I used Always Artichoke in place of Riding Hood Red. I then used some 3D Crystal Lacquer to add dimension to the little red fruits (I think that you can make that out on the image). I just wanted to show you how you can utilize the same image for 2 very different cards. Other products used to create these cards – Prado White cardstock, Corner Rounder Punch & Dimensionals. Trust this finds you in good spirits and thanks for taking the time to drop by!
