Martha Stewart sets the stage for Beate’s Inspiration Challenge #33 this week. Aren’t these colors just yummy! I used three different Flourishes sets on my card. The leaves are from Flourishes “Autumn Flourishes” set. The table and bowl are from “Summer on the Patio”, and the sentiment is from “Figs and Pomegranates”. The ribbon is May Arts sheer 1″ width in chocolate.
The leaves were stamped first using Garden Green and VersaMark on Barely Banana card stock. A VersaMarker was used to draw on the veins before clear embossing all the leaves. I then sponged and sponged using several different colors ranging from yellows to black at the bottom. The center was left a brighter yellow for the table and bowl. The bowl was stamped, clear embossed and masked. Then the table was stamped and clear embossed. The lemons were colored with SU! markers. A white gel pen was used for highlights. The sentiment was also embossed and popped up on dimensionals.
