Less is More #340 Colour Tropical Fruits

Hi everyone.  We have the next challenge starting today at Less is More.  It’s a colour challenge inspired by Tropical Fruits.  Our guest designer this week is Tara Cardwell from this month’s sponsor Seven Hills Crafts. 












My dad’s birthday is at the end of the month, so I thought it would be cool 😎 to make this for him. 😂  Twisted Citron distress ink was used to create the watercolour background on a watercolor stitched rectangle.  The pineapple was stamped with Memento black ink on a scrap of X-press It paper, coloured with Copics and die cut out with the matching die.



Three more were die cut from white cardstock and stacked for dimension.  The sunglass and cool word sentiment were die cut from black cardstock.  Once they were positioned on the card, the rest of the sentiment was stamped with black Archival ink.  Glossy Accents added to “cool” finished off the card.





I am linking to the following challenges:
CAS on Friday#113 Exotic
CASology#260 Juicy
Muse#227 Anything Goes



Only one card from me this week.  My teamies may have more inspirations on their personal blogs for you to check out.  Remember to keep your cards CAS and follow the challenge guidelines.  Thank you for visiting.  Enjoy your day!
