June Twice Is Nice # 2
In order to do my Twice is Nice cards for June, I had to borrow fruit stamps from friends.
This card uses Stampin Up's retired Gorgeous Grapevine stamp set. It's a two step stamp set.
The base grapes were stamped on Natural White cs with Radiant Pearls applied direct to rubber as were the base leaves.
The 2nd stamp for the highlights was stamped with Eggplant Envy for the grapes and Forest Foliage for the leaves.
I then masked over them and stamped the Antique Cracking bg stamp with Going Grey.
Since I had smudged the edges somewhat handling them with Radiant Pearls still on my fingers and the cosmetic sponge still had useable RP on it, I sponged all around it.
I chose Lovely Lilac for my base card and went to my trusty SU color wheel to choose the mat color from the wheels suggested coordinating colors. I chose Old Olive. Hope my partner likes it.
