I can't seem to get caught up (let alone get ahead with work - now THAT would be a wonderful thing) for the life of me. I finally have my card made for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge:
You can check out the CTD blog post HERE <-------click! to see what the rest of the ream created and there's still a bit of time to play along with this challenge before the next one starts!
Here's what I made:
I took the inspiration rather literal, and pulled out Simon Says Stamp's Dancing Fruit stamp set and used the apple image from the set. I stamped it onto Strathmore watercolor paper with a dark brown hybrid ink then watercolored it in with Distress Inks.
The sentiment is the SSS Kindness Matters wafer die, I die cut it from green and black card stocks, offset them a little and backed it with vellum.
I pulled out my SSS exclusive Studio Katia clear drops mix - I LOVE how those look on cards. I also added some of the Studio Katia Red Hearts - in real life they're so pretty and iridescent the way they catch the light.
I finished the inside of the card with a sentiment from SSS's Big Scripty Greetings set and stamped the apples again with the same Distress Inks and that was it!

I get asked a lot about where to purchase the supplies I use in my videos and blog posts. I list all the supplies I use at the end of my posts (below) or in the description box directly below my video on YouTube. If the product images have sets of letters below the image it means there's more than one place it can be purchased. SSS = Simon Says Stamp, AZ = Amazon, MFT = My Favourite Things, SnS = Scrap N Stamp (Canada) etc. Compensated affiliate links used when possible at no extra cost to you. Affiliate linking is what keeps my blog and YouTube channel up and running and enables me to work from home with my kids! I appreciate your support more than words can say!
I occasionally receive product for free from stores/manufacturer with no obligation on my part to use/review - I only use and share what I personally love. Everything else I purchase myself!
