Summer Fruity Drink


It's Summertime, and the living is easy peasy lemon squeezy! My creation today is for 3 challenges -
FEELING FRUITY
Create using fruit on your cards or fruit colours...

I really love this Impression Obsession image - Sweet Lemonade.  It's so summery, fruity, lovey dovey, and PERFECT for these 3 challenges!  So I got to work stamping it with Memento Tuxedo Black and coloring it with Copics.  I cut it out with Nesties and  mounted it on black and Melon Mambo.  Not much more was needed with this combination, so I just decided to emboss white card stock with PTI's Sunshine Impression Plate for the base of my card.  I tried all kinds of placements for the sentiment, which is from Wilson Designs' Teeny Bikini.  Nothing looked right.  This image really stands on its own, so I took the plunge and stamped it right on the image panel.  I am so glad I did that. My eye was pleased! I need a glass on lemonade now...  Thank you for visiting my blog!  I always appreciate your wonderful comments.
