Paper Smooches is a company that offers cute and punny stamps. I don't have any of their stamps yet (my wish list is ever-growing though) but was able to play along with the Sparks challenge this week since they generously offer quite a few digital freebies.
When I saw this berry stamp and sentiment I thought it was perfect for the Food Fresh challenge as well as the Stamp It! Love Card Challenge at Moxie Fab World.
I printed out the large berry several times and colored the layers using Copics (BV00, BV02, BV04). Then I cut parts of the berry and popped up bits of it using foam dots. I really had to resist the urge to add purple Stickles to it and opted for a little color removal with the blending pen instead. The stem and leaves were printed on green polka dot patterned paper which were also highlighted with Copics (YG63, YG11). I opted for a woodgrain embossed background (looking out my window at the blackberry bushes attempting to take over my backyard I can just make out those woody stems) rather than a plain lavendar.
Thanks for stopping by!
