Lemons and Limes

I love using this Funky Fossil floor tile. This time I decided to go for a Mediterranean feel. I thought the lemons from a SU set would look good and as I was paper piecing them and stamping on green for the leaves, I got limes! Pity to waste them, so I ended up stamping again to make lemons and limes.

I used yellow paper for this one and stencilled over with blue to get the green. The sentiment is from the same SU set.

With my first card I'm entering into these challenges
Colour Hues - yellow and green
Path of Positivity - optional patterns

My second card I stencilled and embossed in blue and then using it as a resist applied the yellow ink. I've used a gin stamp from Hunkydory. It felt a bit sparse, so I doodled around the card with a fine liner.

I'm entering this one into Sweet Stampin' - no designer paper. I've stencilled and used DI inks to make the card backing.
and Daisy Chain challenge - No DP also.


Two great cards from this one stencil, a lovely theme too.

These turned out well, it's always a plus to get two cards out of one idea. Loved seeing the bright card in the gallery at Color Hues.
How cheerful and summery cards Lynn, love the Mediterranean feel!! :D Wonderful backgrounds, love especially the green one. That floor tile stencil is fabulous, I have one too, but perhaps a bit too big for cards.I will try, thanks for the inspiration.
