Sweet Lemons on the Patio and CPS!
Lemons, oh how sweet! From FLOURISHES new release, Summer on the Patio set. This is a wonderful image that comes in two sizes to accommodate the patio table that is included in the set. This and my previous post are but two of the many patio accessories that enable you to create a superb patio scene. Practicing with my Copic markers again! The bowl or basket was a hard one!. Let alone trying to make the three look relatively alike! I love the vibrancy of the lemons though! Using clear card stock, this time I stamped a little flourish image from the FLOURISHES set, Siberian Iris. The sentiment is from the FLOURISHES set, Sweet Treats. I did not write down copic colors, once I get more efficient with them I will start writing colors down and showing you how I am achieving my final result! For the white swirl I used my new white opaque StazOn. clear card stock, in order for adhesives not to show, planning how the card elements will be assembled is important. The white lemon image square is adhered on the outside of the clear card. The yellow square you see edging the white square is adhered on the inside front directly behind the white square. I applied one small piece of adhesive on the Boxer Basic Grey DP to hold the dp piece on the inside back. One the outside back I added a scalloped circle with two lemonade glasses to cover the adhesive! The sentiment strip has running adhesive all along it's length, which helps hold the dp in place too! This pic helps you see more of the inside view of the card. I love this Basic Grey DP. The yellow dew drops add just a bit of pizazz without taking away from the image. The card layout is my interpretation of the CardPositioning systems layout challenge this week! If you like layout challenges check it out! I made this card for Latisha! I don't know if she visits here or not, but she is hostessing a FLOURISHES swap over on the SCS FLOURISHES member forum. I am including this card in my swaps as a thank you to her for all the organization and hard work it takes to conduct a card swap! A shout out THANK YOU to Latisha!
