I'm Feeling Fruity !!!

... well, I had to be so that I could create an entry for this week's Less is More Challenge which has the theme - Feeling Fruity !

When I ventured into Viva Las Vegas Stamps while on vacation earlier this year (it certainly was an experience I can tell you !) I was faced with a huge mountain of pink rubber and a sign which said "10 unmounted stamps for $10".  Well, what was a girl to do?  I had to pick up a small basket and load it with a pile of stamps.

The images I've used on my card were two of these stamps.  I only inked up part of the one with the lines as I didn't want too deep a border under the watermelon image.

I stamped the images with Memento Cottage Ivy ink and coloured with Copics.  The sentiment is from my box of sentiment stamps and I'm sorry I don't know who it's by, I stamped it with Memento Rhubarb Stalk ink.

I really missed the LIM challenge whilst away on vacation, it's so nice to get back to it this week.

Thanks for dropping by today.
