Freshly Squeezed!


Hi everyone! I have two cards to share today! The images from the Concord & 9th 'Hugs' stamp set are so adorable, I just couldn't stop at one! Plus, the color combo of this weeks Color Throwdown fit perfectly with the design! I actually think it was the pictures of the mimosas that got me thinking citrus!!




I started by watercoloring the stamped images and knew I wanted them against a background of bright green. Once dry, I added in some Wink of Stella clear  glitter accents for a bit of sparkle and then layered them onto the background. The sentiment is stamped in 'Barn Door' distress ink and a few sequins are sprinkled about.


While the watercolor images were drying, I decided to create another card with Copic colored images. I first embossed the sentiment in bright green and then added embossed images of the citrus slices in orange and red. I added more Wink of Stella clear glitter after they were colored in with the Copic markers! To add in more of the pretty green, I gave the card a bit of ribbon and shiny green sequins!



Thanks for checking out my blog! Bee Happy!!

Supplies Used:
Cartwright's sequins
American Crafts ribbon
Stampin' Up embossing powder
Copic Markers
