Less is More Week 26 - Lucky Dip


Ok, so we have our 'Lucky Dip' week as it's the fifth Saturday of July.
The challenge is 
FEELING FRUITY
Chrissie and Mandi would like to see fruit on our cards or fruit colours...easy peasy 'lemon' squeezy! Yeah yeah!!!
Well the one thing don't have in my stamp collection is a fruity one! Having checked out some of the fantastic entries I think Susan has them all :)
I remembered having seen some fruit on Beccy's site and went to see the digi's in her archives. Sure enough there was a pear but I loved this basket of apples.
I printed the image out in Craft Artist so that I could bend the text and then I used my promarkers to colour in, heavens it sounds like I'm back at primary school!
I used a basic 7 x 5 white card and the apple on the text I drew, coloured and wrote the text on it and then used a little silicone glue to lift it slightly, hope that's ok with the "crafty duo".
So there we have my entry for this week, thanks for looking and your comments are always a joy and much appreciated!
