Shimmery Strawberries



Hey all! Here's a card I made for Fall-to Layout 51 and today's Timeless Tuesday challenge, which is to add Shimmerz. Does the sentiment look smeared?...well, it is. Ugh! Note to self: sponge the edges and THEN stamp the sentiment...or be patient and make sure the ink is totally dry on the sentiment before sponging.

I cut out four strawberries and two flowers from a second image to give it the out-of-the-box look. Four strawberries are up on foam tape, the two flowers are just glued down with plain ole' adhesive. The edges of the card base and Labels One panel are sponged with Soft Sky ink. Angel Wings Shimmerz was added to the leaves and strawberries.

Beautiful Denise, awesome work.

--It doesn't look smeared from here. I so hate when that happens, sometimes I cover up a smear with a flower.

Silke said...

Denise - this is BEAUTIFUL!!! I love how you used the layout with the Strawberries Set!!! Yummy!!!!

Don't worry about the smear - I would have never guessed...the sponging covers it up perfectly :)!!!

Thank you for taking the time to play with us :)!!! Hugs ~S~

Ugh...nothing is worse than getting all done with a card and then doing something silly to mess it up...I don't think it looks bad at all, but I know we are our own worst critics. Love everything about this card, beautiful coloing and I love the added "shimmer"~

I can not count how many times I have done the same thing while sponging...always happen when I sponge on a smooth white!
