Lucky Dip... feeling fruity

It's been ages since I've been able to play along with the Less is More blog challenges. This week, it's Feeling Fruity. I don't have many stamps with fruit on them, but I have (and have been getting a lot of mileage) out of a House Mouse stamp. I've made a couple of cards with this stamp over the past couple of months, but I have finally been able to colour the lemon so it looks like a lemon, and not a yellow blob.

It took me a while to actually get this stamp onto paper. I was in a cleaning mode yesterday, and that transferred onto the stamp, as well. I had it inked twice and cleaned it off twice before it hit paper. I stamped onto Strathmore Bristol paper and coloured with Copics. I used a border punch to punch the holes and overlaid the card onto some orange stock that picks up the orange from the flower. Wasn't sure what I am going to use this card for, so I didn't put a sentiment onto the card. I like it just the way it is, and will put the sentiment on the inside instead, I think.

I seem to be on the roll again with postings... hope I can keep it up with at least one post per week in August!


  1. Cute card. I like your coloring. I used a lemon for my card this week too.

  2. I'm a sucker for House Mouse designs. This one is adorably executed.

  3. Brilliant card Andrea, think it would work on it's own too without the border at the bottom
    Looks like a brill G&T to me

  4. I love the border and I love the image but I think it would work equally well without the border
