More Lemons

Hi there.  I'm so glad you stopped by!

I used the lemon stamp set from this card for a card in my last class.  Since I had a 
leftover kit, I decided to use it for the Color Hues Challenge.

I made a few changes in the background color and leaves to fit this challenge
and added an extra lemon to the front.

The leaves were cut from white and colored with some yellow ink with
blue sponged over the top.  It left a blue color but a different shade of blue from the
sentiment and splatters.

I'm loving the die and embossing folder combos...As long as I remember to cut first,
then emboss!

Those lemons look SO juicy Bonnie! I love the way you made those the big splash of yellow and then went subtler with the blues in the background. Vicky x

Just love your cheery cluster of lemons, Bonnie - wonderful with the blue accents!!

Pat said...

Those lemon slices look as though they are ready to put into a refresshing G & T Bonnie, and I love the blue spatters and the yellow with blue over the top has made a pretty greeny blue colour, and the dark blue ink and coordinating mat layer are perfect. x

Karen said...
