Happy Monday Everyone!
I’m so thrilled to be on the Craftin Desert Divas blog today with a special post featuring brand new and sooooooo adorable Fruity Friends Days stamp set from the Craftin Desert Divas new July Release!!!
This is a long post filled with lots of pictures and so let’s start immediately with the first card colored with copic markers.
I chose some cute fruity characters from Fruity Friends Days set and stamped them with a copic friendly black ink. Next I proceeded with coloring and finally fussy cut everything with sharp scissors leaving a little white edge around.
Here’s the complete list of copic markers I used here: skin E0000-E01-E02-E11-R20; YG00-YG01-YG13-YG25-YG95; R02-R05; hair Y21-YR24-YR29-E39; Y11-Y15-Y17-YR24; E33; BG00.
Working on the layout, I die cut three stitched frames from Fancy Frame Die Set, added a soft layer of Shaded Lilac Distress Oxide ink and a fun dotted pattern through Sorted Shapes Stencil with a plain white embossing paste.
Next we have a soft watercolor scene.
I switch to a Bristol paper and stamped a few adorable girls from Fruity Friends along with some small images from Garden Bugs stamp sets with a waterproof black ink.
Before making the coloring I also prepared some die cuts for the background using the same Bristol paper, Flower Border Dies and Fancy Frame Die Sets.
Finally I could enjoy watercoloring the whole card with the watercolor pencils from Prima. “The Basics” 12 piece set was more than enough for this card since you can stretch any color and create a variety of shades by adding less or more water.
My third example is this colorful and bright shaker card.
Once more I started with a Bristol paper and a waterproof black ink, but gave a totally different look to this card due to Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers and their incredibly juicy colors.
Here’s the complete list of all the colors used: n.51 Lemon Yellow – n.50 Yellow – n.25 Pale Pink – n.26 Light Pink – Peach Pink – Dark Pink – n.40 Green – n.46 Mid Green – n.71 Flesh Colour – n.61 Light Brown – n.64 Oatmeal
Assembling the shaker part, I prepared a watercolor background and filled the circle window with Jungle Berries Sequins mix.
Last but not least I created a colorful fruity background using small stamps from Fruity Friends set. I love to play with small stamps and give them a main focus on my cards. The patterned background is one of the easiest ways for that.
I stamped a whole bunch of images on a watercolor paper, took my regular watercolors and tried to make a non perfect, a little bit splotchy watercolor look. Next I decided to transform my pattern into a scalloped circle card with Inside Scalloped Circle Dies and finished with the heat embossed sentiment from the same Fruity Friends set put on a fish-tail banner.
That’s all for today! Hope this post will inspire you to stretch your craft supplies and get more use of the same stamp set! And please let me know in the comments below which card is your favorite!!! I’m very curious to hear from you!!!
