Hello blog friends! It's the start of a new week, and with the temperatures around here, feeling a bit like summer! In a few days we could be expecting temperatures a bit too warm for my tastes, lol. I'll take the warmer days over the bitter cold anytime though!
With summer fast approaching, I felt like making a bright summery card, with Strawberries of course. I love strawberries, next to watermelon they are my favorite fruit for eating, but tops for coloring. This charming bowl of berries is something new for LOTV, but I really hope to see more. They really are fun.
I colored them with my Copics, and to highlight the seeds instead of leaving them white (too difficult!) I went back with a Souffle pen. Not exactly realistic looking, but kind of fun and whimsical.
The papers are a digital collection, again from Raspberry Road Designs, called Flour Sack. Lots of lovely vintage, remind-me-of-Grandma's apron and dishtowel patterns. Perfect for this strawberry bowl image!
The sentiment is from the new clear set 'Vintage Labels- Occasions'. Love these! I cut it out with my scissors, then added a border in a red Copic. The look of a matted layer, without the work.
Hope you like it, thanks for visiting!
