Less is More Week 26 Feeling Fruity! :)

This week's fabulous Less is More challenge is FEELING FRUITY!!! I love it, because one of my absolute favorite stamp sets is four simple fruity solid images from Stampin' Up! called Tart and Tangy! Since it was recently retired, I have had to put it away and felt a void deep inside...*sigh*. BUT, then came this challenge and I was excited to get it out again!

Here is my submission:

I new that I needed to make the fruit images look juicy, so I used a glitter gel pen to accent the citrus slices, then I covered them with SU! glossy accents. I felt they needed to pop out more, so I backed them with punched out black cardstock pieces. I feel that the end result is fabulous! These pictures don't give do them justice...

I also embossed the background of my card with a pineapple embossing folder--since I was feeling fruity and all. ;D I love the colors and everything just worked!!!

Thank you for taking the time to check out my card and my blog! Thanks to the LIM ladies for another fabulous challenge! I hope you can play along with us sometime and I hope that you're inspired to create something juicy today! Happy stamping!!!

Hi Mynnette,

Thanks for the lovely comments and following my blog! I am following you too so I can come look at your beautiful creations!

This card is very pretty. The fruit slices look like as they are real!

A few weeks ago a bought some beads online in a Dutch webshop. But i don't do that so often, i more like to pick out beads in a real shop.

Greetings Sofieke
