Cherry Summer

Have a look at Scribbles latest challenge and be inspired; there are lots of 
special things happening, here:  scribblesdesignschallenge

Get the Scribbles images I've used, here:

Images: Cupcake, drinks, sentiment: Scribbles
EF: Cuttlebug swiss dots (my first ever EF)
Paperpiecing: liquid & cupcake wrapper
Copics: cherry and shading

Also: Glossy Accents (cherry), and WinkOfStella (icing),
patterned papers, white pigment pen for highlights.

My assignment was to be inspired by special food at Christmas.   In New Zealand we have a summer Christmas and it just so happens to coincide with fresh cherries coming into shops.  So for this card I have combined the delicious cherry on a cupcake (with cream cheese icing) and a nice cool drink while we swelter in the heat under a shady tree  (sigh).  

 The image is printed three times, twice on card and once in part onto patterned paper for piecing.  Shading is added with Copics in similar colours.  WoS is applied to the icing, and Glossy Accents to the cherry (oh yum).  The cupcake is raised on 3D foam.

What a great card Carol - and so typical of our Christmas's
I wish we had been sweltering - but in reality it was comfortable and the rain did not start until late afternoon! I too am a (fresh) cherry lover!

Love your design, Carol - it's strange to think of a warm Christmas when we're here in Britain in the cold!

Thanks for joining us at the Colour Crazy Challenge.
