Craft Decathlon - Mouthwatering Cherries

This is the second time I have written this blog post! Argh. The Blogger App on my phone was playing up, so I closed it down, and lost this post. So I'm writing them all in the Notes App on my phone, and keeping my fingers crossed I don't lose it again!

This is another card made using the Mouthwatering stamp set, but with the cherries this time. The cherries image was stamped onto the Whisper White card stock with Lucky Limeade ink, and a Jelly Bean brad placed near the leaf. Eight cherries were stamped in Real Real card, using the 1" (2.5cm) Circle Punch. One was placed flat on the cherry, then the other three stuck together to create a 3-d raised effect. The White uni-ball Signo gel pen was used to create a shine. I've used lots of white ink pens before, and this one is by far the best. The cherries paper from Sweet Shop was placed over a strip of Real Red card stock, which had been punched with the Scallop Trim Border Punch. The Just for You sentiment from Oval All was stamped in Real Red, and punched out with the Large Scallop punch, and mounted onto a Lucky Limeade Scallop Oval Punch piece of card. The Birthday Wishes sentiment is from Sincere Salutations. The Lucky Limeade marker pen was used to create a stitched image around the edges of the Whisper White card layers. For anyone who hasn't used the markers, they are dual tip, with a fine end for writing and a brush tip for colouring images and stamps. They match all the papers and card that Stampin' Up! offer. They can be bought individually, in sets of 10 in the colour families, or as a full set.
