If Life Gives You Lemons...
This Clean and Simple (CAS) card was created using the Colour Me...! CMCC85Challenge along with the Simon Says Monday "Citrus with a Twist" Challenge and the CCEE1534Lemonade Challenge.
I have owned this stamp set for many years and have not inked up this image before- not sure why other than possibly too many stamps and not enough time- lol!!
Again, if you have not already done so, I hope you will find the time to visit the above sites to check out the fantastic Design Team samples as well as their fabulous challenge galleries!
This card was easy to create- stamp the image from the retired Country Comfort set using Stāz-On® Jet Black Ink onto Whisper White cardstock, watercolor with an AquaPainter™ using Stampin’ Write Markers- Daffodil Delight, Melon Mambo and Basic Gray (scribble the marker onto an acrylic block and pick up the ink with the AquaPainter™), add a few shadows with the Sahara Sand Stampin’ Write marker and cut out using the Big Shot™ with curved banner MFT Blueprints 13 Die.
Stamp the splatter stamps from Gorgeous Grunge using Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo Classic Ink onto a piece of Whisper White cardstock, trim and mount onto a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock, trim and mount onto the Melon Mambo card base.
Add the Gold Thread loops and mount the focal image using Stampin’ Dimensionals® to finish off the card.
