Fruity

Saturday turned out surprisingly nice after a wet night and dull morning wish it had not looked like rain first thing I'd have risked the garden.   Still there is always later today, after daybreak!

Had a little play instead, the latest challenge to tax us from Less is More is to used fruit and or the colour of fruit.    Honestly fruit! just a little more thought provoking than some of have been.   A little head scratching until I remembered some stamps Sue Law drew a couple of years back, Sue very kindly let Andrew run off a plate for me as well.   All sorts of things on this plate including the citrus fruit.

Decided on a DL card with Oranges and Limes because I like the colours.  Sorted the design and made a couple of masks to allow the fruit slices to overlap.    Coloured the fruit with Marvy La Plume solvent pens.    The sentiment stamped in Brilliance Inks is from Stampin' up.

Brandy and Orange would go down rather well about now.
