When Life Gives You Lemons

I have been meaning to have a play around with my new STAMPlorations Layered Citrus for a while and when I saw the challenge over at Fusion I knew I had to play along. First I was going to re-create the inspiration image with yellow and orange fruit and the green leaves, but I thought I could also use green to stamp some limes to complement the oranges and lemons. I stamped the outlines of the fruit in Distress Oxide and then used the layering stamps to fill in the fruit with lighter shades of Distress Ink, masking as I went along. I stamped the first part of the sentiment in Versamark on black card and heat embossed in black and stamped the second part directly onto the fruit. 

Card: white 200 gsm card, scrap of black card
Stamps: STAMPlorations Layered Citrus
Ink and colouring: Tsukineko Memento Tuxedo Black, Versamark, Distress Oxide Spiced Marmalade, Fossilized Amber, Lucky Clover, Distress Ink Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey, Twisted Citron
Other: Wow white embossing powder
