One more fruit card! I'm stuck again and having fun! :o)
- Use grid as a mask to sponge square shapes on base card. I held it in place with low tack tape. I used the two lightest shades in the blox. Let dry. Note: ink on glossy card stock takes a little longer than on matte card stock to dry. Remove grid.
- Mask off a square at a time using sticky notes.
- Color directly on stamps using various markers to shade. Play with the colors until you find something you like. Sometimes I search for pictures on the web to give me ideas for colors. Pick the colors you like! Have fun with it! I stamped all the fruit first, then stamped the sentiment - allowing each image to dry before I went on to the next one.
- I colored in the watermelon seeds with a skinny marker and added highlights of white paint to the grapes
