Hello, my friends! This is my second week as a Guest Designer for Splitcoaststampers’ Tuesday Color Challenge. This week’s challenge is hosted by the wonderful Barbara (bejoyce). The colors she chose for the challenge are the Stampin’ Up! (SU) colors of Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, and Mossy Meadow. Her “dessert” (i.e., extra points) is “Summer Treats”. For my card, I used the Power Poppy Apples In Season Digital Stamp Set for the image.
After coloring the image, I used a SU Oval Framelit to cut it out. I then used Neenah Solar White Card Stock as my card base and cut it into the shape of the largest SU Oval Framelit. I used the SU colors for some of my coloring and Copics for the remainder.
I also cut a Daffodil Delight oval in the shape of the largest SU Oval Framelits to add a touch of yellow behind the image. I allowed three Clear Crystal Drops to dry completely and colored them with a yellow marker before adding them as an embellishment. I colored around the image with a blue copic marker and added the “Thank You” sentiment from Catherine Pooler’s Butterfly Notes Stamp set, which is unavailable currently.
Why did I chose this image as my “Summer Treat”? The Golden Delicious apples remind me of my family’s summer treat of picking apples and making apple sauce, apple butter, apple pies, and so on. I loved going to my uncle’s to pick the apples from his many and varied, gorgeous apple trees.
Apple blossoms can be various colors, depending upon the type of apple. Sometimes, a particular tree, such as a Golden Delicious tree, will produce white blossoms while another could produce white/pinkish blossoms. Therefore, I added just a touch of pink onto the blossoms.
I hope you enjoy the card and will leave a comment!
