Hi! Today I’m back with a card for two challenges listed below.




I started by stamping all the fruits in the Studio Calico stamp set with HA white pigment ink onto a piece of kraft cardstock. Then adhered a piece of vellum to tone down a bit. For the stitched piece of watercolor cardstock, I colored the HA Tweed BG with diluted Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors and a brush. The result is a bit random, but beautiful. I stamped some of the smaller fruits again with Versafine onyx black and colored with more concentrated Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolors. To finish off my card, I adhered a Scrapiniec chipboard covered with CWS to my cluster of fruits, die cut a PS tiny tag and some glittery sugar corners. The word “cool” is partially stamped from SSS “you’re so cool” phrase.

Challenges I’m entering:




The Heart Desires Challenge #2 – You still have a few days to make your own interpretation of the tropical theme. Think hibiscus, pineapples, colourful birds, palm trees, icecream… this last item is like neutral colors, goes well with any theme :). You have also the bonus of a sketch. The link will remain open until July, 27th.

Flickr Love group July challenge – The theme is “Tag You’re It”. You can add a tag to your projects, or make just a tag… if you put your glasses on, you will see that I have one in my card :)!

To join in the fun, these are the basic rules:

1 Add this tag to your entry lovechallenge#7 all one word.

2 Post to the Love group photo pool.

3 Share it in the discussion stream.

You will have until the 31st of July to post your entry (max. 2).


Stamps: HA – Tweed Background; SC – Far Far Away Kit; SSS – Ice Cream Dream.

Dies: ME – Femme Frames; Nellie Snellen – Photo-frames; PS – Toppers.


Thank you for stopping by.

    Totally agree with Amy! Love the layers and the coloring. I haven’t tried layered CAS yet, but this is great inspiration! 😀 😉
