Feeling Fruity - FTTC130

It's an extra special Timeless Tuesday because today the Friends of Flourishes bloggers are bringing you a sneak peek at the first new release for this week, Wild for Watermelon! I am the Timeless Tuesday challenge hostess this week, and my challenge for you today is to get fruity! Create a card or other project with an image of fruit, or papers with fruit! Once you have your card created, head over to the Flourishes blog, review the challenge rules (they're different this week.... pay attention!), and then link yourself up! You could be the lucky winner of the entire new release if you play along!

So, here is my Fruity creation using the new Wild for Watermelon stamp set and some Echo Park "For the Record" papers. I colored my image with Copics from the Dahlia collection, as well as the Holly collection on Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock.
I added a little Glossy Accents to the "glass" of my salt shaker after coloring....

...and since the front of my card is a little on the clean-and-simple-side I decided to finish the inside of the card, as well. The watermelon seeds that are included in this set will make a great added finishing touch to your creations!
If you need more "fruity" inspiration, please visit these members of the Timeless Tuesday team...

Allison Cope, August Guest Designer

Remember, check out all the details on the Flourishes blog and read over the rules for this week carefully as they're different than usual! Happy stamping!
