Fab'n'Funky Challenges #174 - Let's Get Fruity

Hi Everyone,

Wednesday's seem to be here before I know it just now.  It's only two and a half weeks until my brother's wedding.  Eek!  I'm sure it'll be more hectic before then too!

But I have a post to do and the Fab'n'Funky Challenges blog has been updated with the winners and Top 3 from last week's challenge of One for the Girls.  We were bowled over with all the great entries.  Thanks to everyone for making our job so hard but enjoyable!

For this week we have the brilliant Beccy as our host and she has chosen a super theme...

Let's Get Fruity

We would like to see fruit in your design.  You could add a fruity embellishment, digi or backing paper.  Our sponsor is the awesome Stamp Fairy and the DT were lucky to be able to work with their images.  I used Lenny Fruits 3 and you can find him here.

I started with a 6" scalloped card blank and printed the checked paper from Craft Artist Professional 2 after changing the colour to monochrome.  I ran this though an Embossalicious embossing folder from Crafter's Companion with a chevron design.  

My image was coloured with ProMarkers in Cool Grey 1, CG2, CG3, CG4, CG5, Ruby, Heatwave, Apple Cider and Pear Green.  I cut out the little guy with Spellbinders Grand Labels Eleven.  Finally, I added a big green satin bow and ribbon border. My button is recycled from a piece of clothing.  

I really hope you'll get fruity with us this week!  Can't wait to see your makes.

Happy crafting,
Rachel x
