Strawberries? Yes Please.

Hello and a Big Welcome. 
Today's post is for a couple of challenges 
I found while browsing. Something a little 
different from flowers and the like.
Well not too far away as it is 'fruit'.
When I saw the challenges for
and my Good Friend Bobby was Hosting
I knew I had a NBUS stamp that was perfect.
Also The Paper Players challenge calls for
I heat embossed my NBUS Repeat Impressions 
Strawberry Stamp - 515L
with WOW Metallic Platinium powder
onto water colour paper and coloured
my image with various colours of 
red, green,orange and lemon Brusho's.
Added a water wash to the background
with metallic paints.
Attached this to my parchment card base.
I cut a octagon shape from the same card base
and popped it for dimension.
Sentiment stamp is part of a set gifted by a friend
which matched perfectly. Inked in Festive Berries
and heat embossed in clear powder.
Finished with some red twine.

Thanks so much for popping in. Love reading your comments.
Till next time - Cherrio from

Such a sweet card (no pun!). I love the heat embossing, especially with the platinum. It really makes the colors pop. And having all that white makes the image pop too. Well done, this is a stunner!!!

Watercoloring with Brushos gives great dimension to your lovely berries and leaves, Ina, and I'm loving that background. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Addicted to CAS.
