BasicGrey Challenges 16 – Tutti Frutti

<KENOX S860  / Samsung S860>
Hi everyone, hope you’re all well and already enjoying the weekend. It’s a new challenge on BasicGrey and this time our theme is Tutti Frutti!  Amazing inspiration as always from my DT friends and a great prize from Simon Says Stamp to make things even sweeter :D, I hope you can join us.

I’ve used one of the lovely papers from the new BG Green at heart collection, a pear stamp by ‘Me and Carrie Lou’  to fit in with the challenge which I embossed in gold then water coloured with distress inks. All the edges are distressed and sponged with Walnut stain ink, the pear has been cut out and mounted over the punched square of cream card with dimension tape. The cream square is also popped up but I didn’t manage to catch the effect in the photo. Amazingly, NO stickles was used on this card………… think I’d better go and have a lie down :D! TFL and thanks as always for your lovely comments, I appreciate them very much.
