Strawberries!

Good Morning TRC friends.  I am here with the stunning strawberry stamp that every designer will most likely use this month.  I have to tell you that it is my favorite of the stamps for this months Creative Cafe KOTM - Farm Fresh.  

What I had in mind at the  beginning is not what my card ended up being like.  But, sometimes that works!


I started by embossing the stamp in white on watercolor paper.  I started with the dark green around my leaves.


Using my blender pen, I colored inward to blend my color.  I moved on to yellow then the red.


Here is my end result.  I was going to leave it like this but decided to fussy cut it at the last minute.


I added it  directly to the cute Echo Park papers included in the kit.  To make my banners, I embossed the sentiments on white paper with white embossing powder and then colored with the pen that I wanted my banner to be.


Last minute doodling and enamels helped bring my card together.  You could make this card any size you want.  Twisting the ribbon and stapling it to the ends, make it a little thinner.  Cutting it in half causes it to fray.  This works good for me.  See you again soon.
