Wishing you a day filled with sun and laughter



Wishing you a day filled with sun and laughter in Swedish :) I so love August as it fills my table with berries, corn on the cob, crawfish and lovely veggies. It's a blessing! The note card shows the colours of my fave berries, can you guess the light green one?

Challenges:
Less Is More: Berry Colours


Brushos, Liquid Pearls, Ek Success corner punch, Kaiser gems, Vilda stamps sentiment


 Yay!!!

To make the above card you need to mask the stamped images, begin with the images that are on top. Use light colours for the images that need to look like they are further away. Blur the stamping of them with a wet cut'n'dry pen nib or a blender pen. Create shadows with a blender pen by picking wanted colours. Add colour to the top images if needed. Does it make any sense?

Thank you so much for visiting, it's much appreciated!

Love and hugs
Maarit
