These are the instuctions from our Illustrious Limette Leaders. 
Ok, so we have our 'Lucky Dip' week as it's the fifth Saturday of July.
The challenge is 
We would like to see fruit on your cards or fruit colours...easy peasy 'lemon' squeezy!
How do I do this - easy peasy 'lemon' squeezy!, well, I did a card the other week, posted earlier in my blog of a melon, so thought I would "cheat" and  copy it, then thought that wouldn't do for Chrissy and Mandi their standards are too high and they do say "no backlinks" so I thought as I had a lot to do I would copy it!!!! to make up the time I didn't have -  this is it.

I preferred the first melon thanks, so on Sunday I started looking for a suitable image I had, digis for me as you know :)  then found a Priscilla Styles "Fruit" that I had forgotten I had and decided to have a go at that, colouring on PS, sorry I can't do otherwise, I make such a mess.  I finished the colouring and printed it on Cuddly Buddly pearlised card, then decided to use Penny Duncan Shaplies on my Cricut to make a shape around the fruit, I edged it in purple with my Whispers ink pad, added another layer of purple and then cut the corners with my ribbon punch and threaded green ribbon through each corner.
I'm not sure what it's suitable for at the moment so will hold it back and see what happens.  I hope you like it. (them)  Sorry for the photo quality, but I photographed it at night.

Love your watermelon truck! The image on the second card is colored so beautifully. Ann

Mandi said...

Lovely card Faith, I personally think that fruit arrangement needed to be on a plainer setting as it's fairly intricate

Thanks so much

Wow Faith your work keeps on going from strength to strength. The first one made me laugh because here in Greece in the summer the farmers sell huge watermelons from their trucks by the side of the road and it reminds me of that. The second one has beautiful details and colouring very stylish indeed.

Two great cards, Faith, but I think the second one is my favorite...love the coloring on the fruit. I take most of my photos at night. I build a "light box" of sorts and have a tutorial on my blog about how I take my photos that might help you. My blog
