Fruit Salad - CIDT Challenge

If you are here for the Play Date Cafe Challenge click here

I'm not actually sharing fruit salad today!  Kassi issued the Creative Inspirations Paint Team the following theme: Fruit Salad...let fruit inspire your project.  I found the perfect papers from Cosmo Cricket and paired them up with the wonderful Multi Step Berries set from Kitchen Sink Stamps.  I used MTSC81 for my sketch inspiration.

So where did I add the Creative Inspirations Paint you ask? I used the Fairy Dust Paint and applied it to the berries and flowers on the pattern paper, and to the flower blossom on the strawberry using the Brush Tip of a Fantastix Tool.   I bet your wondering why I didn't apply it to my colored berries....well, if you apply the paint to the berries it will mix with your die ink and blur the detail on the stamped image.  (Click photos to enlarge)

Very pretty card Lisa!!

Terry said...

Scrumptious strawberries! The designer paper is made for that yummy stamp! Wonderful card! I wonder if you did a light spray with a matt sealer/varnish if that would work for painting on the stamped image? The berries look perfect to me without any touchup!

Kassi said...

beautiful card! I love how realistic those stawberry stamps are! random thought... what if you painted the paper before you stamp? the shimmer should still show through... just thinkin' here.

Would this card fall under the title of "edible arrangements"? Those berries look so fresh, I love the designer paper, awesome job!

Lisa, this card is beautiful (good enough to eat) I don't know how I did it, but I missed Fairy Dust. Can't wait until my new paints come.

Danni said...

Oh yummy!! This is one delicious card!

Shelly Schmidt said...

Man this is gorgeous!!! I love the awesome color and I like the tip about the image getting blurred- I have not quite figured that out.....! I LOVE the great color you achieved with the gorgeous stamp! TFS
