Fruity Get Well card with video tutorial
Hi everyone,

It's Monday and that means a new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week it's all about "Foot and/or Drinks".

This challenge is pretty self explanatory! We would like you to include some food and/or drink on your creation! We will be looking forward to seeing what tasty goodness you serve up for us this week! :-)

This is a little bit of a different style card than I usually make (like I don't really do watercoloring a lot, I didn't use washi tape... and no distressed/inked edges), but I'm really happy with the result. For this card I 've used two different masking methods. I've partially masked the Simon Says Stamp Dancing Fruits stamps with Masking Tape to stamp the apple in front of the pear. And then I masked them with Incredible White Mask Liquid Frisket. I haven't used it for a while now and it's no longer incredible white... not at all... Little warning: this stuff smells really bad, but it works really good!


After I finished the background made with Distress Oxide, I applied Distress Ink Black Soot to creat a shadow. This to ground  the Dancing Fruits, and for this I also made a partial mask for the pear. Actually, you don't have to make a mask for it, but I know myself .... I need to...
I was thinking about leaving them plain, but eventually I chose to color them in. I used both Distress Oxide and Distress Ink to do so.
