Happy Sunday, Friends! Today at The Paper Players the wonderful and talented Claire is hostess. She has chosen Summer Treats for this Clean and Simple challenge. Fun!
I love ice cream, but I had a healthier treat in mind. Nothing screams summer more to me than the sight of bing cherries in the supermarket. What a delicious treat! I used my brand new stamp set called You're So Sweet from Simon Says Stamp and coordinating dies. The patterned paper is from the SSS May Card Kit.
I am playing along with two other challenges today. The Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge is to use your favorite product or technique, and for me that would be coloring with my ever growing collection of Copic markers. Also the 30 Day Coloring Challenge wants us to color somthing every day.
I love the way these cherries came out! I stamped them in Memento ink, colored with Copic markers and then die cut them. Then I added a liberal dose of Wink of Stella. After that I covered them with two coats of Glossy Accents, allowing them to dry between each coat. They are so sparkly and shiny IRL. Thanks to Debbie Hughes for the tip of using the two products together.
