(Fruit ) Cocktail












Less is More Challenge
'COCKTAIL'


  


Well for the Less is More challenge this week the ladies have asked that we use our imaginations with the theme 'Cocktail' and this is my 'Fruit Cocktail'. A long time ago, for a previous challenge, I was looking around the net for punch art fruit ideas and I came across hundreds so I cannot take any credit at all for these and I don't think I would ever be able to track down who came up with the idea first as so many crafters 'case' the brilliance of others - so to any originators of these fab fruits a big thank you for sharing your ideas. Anyway this is my effort to create a fruit basket - lots of punches, lots of different coloured cardstock and far too many to list here but you get the idea. The basket was textured with the new embossing folder 'Stripes' I ran it through one way and then turned it round and ran it through again to give the effect of weaving and the handle was put through the Crimper to add dimension. I wasn't sure what sentiment to add to the card but decided to make it a Get Well card as it could maybe accompany some real fruit.
Once again I would like to thank Chrissie & Mandi for showCASing one of my cards this week, I was thrilled :0)
Have a good weekend and Happy Crafting!
