Meredith's Blog then you are in the right place, if not you may want to start back at the Flourishes Blog! Today our hostess is Sasha and she's challenged us to use Citrus colours in our projects! I know it's Summer in many parts of the world and that it is Citrus season for them, but did you know that although it is Winter here in Australia, that it is Citrus time here too?? It's usually around the beginning of May (late Autumn here) that the mandarins start popping up in stores and then citrus fruits continue through Winter. Keep in mind, in our part of the world it never snows and even in the middle of winter most of the trees are green! :)
Garden Gate stamp set for my Citrus themed card being inspired by the colours of Lemons, Limes and Oranges! I've used a base of Old Olive and layered with yellow, white and Summer Breeze DP. Across this is another piece of Old Olive punched with Woodland Branch border punch and topped with more Summer Breeze DP. Around this I've added a piece of Solid Wrinkled White ribbon. I've stamped the image in Memento Tuxedo Black on blending card and coloured with a variety of Copic markers from the Olive Green, Burnt Orange, Daffodil, Cool Neutrals and Terra Cotta Collections. I've cut this into a square and matted with Old Olive and yellow cut with Fleur De Lis Squares Nestabilities. I've added a small pearl flourish to the top corner, a double bow to the ribbon and stamped the sentiment from Garden Gate, cut with Classic Oval Large Nestabilities and popped it up on foam tape.
