Friday Focus

A simple little card to share today.  The layout is from CAS Colours & Sketches and the colours from ColourQ.

So this card is back to my usual style - clean and stamped and organised.  I started by stamping the diagonal stripes and die cutting the tags, then stamped the sentiment before adhering the banners.

Next I die cut the three squares and stamped the two spotty apples and all the leaves.  I stamped the heart apple on a separate piece of card and cut it out by hand before mounting onto a foam square. A quick whisk of Wink of Stella over the heart apple and my card was done - very straightforward and easy to stamp and assemble.

Stamps: Clearly Besotted, An Apple A Day, Diagonal Stripes
Inks: SU, Pacific Point, Bermuda Bay; Memento, Lady Bug; Kaleidacolor, mustard from Creole Spice
Dies: Clearly Besotted, Tag Along; Spellbinders, classic squares large
Embellishments: Wink of Stella, clear

Thanks to everyone who has entered the AAA Cards watercolour challenge this week - the response has been fantastic and we're going to have a difficult time deciding a winner.  Be sure to check back here on Sunday for our next game which is a bit of a layout and I've got the watercolours out again for my sample.

Thanks for looking today, hope you've found it enjoyable.
