Summer Time Grapes

Hi everyone! Back with another card tonight! This time I was inspired by The Cat’s Pajamas Tuesday Challenge #216! The theme was summer, so I instantly thought of using the delicious grape cluster image from Stampin’ Up! on this card. I, of course, had to watercolor them! 🙂



I started by trimming a piece of patterned paper to about 2.5 inches and adhering it flat onto the card base. Next, I cut a piece of water color paper to 4.25 by 4.5 inches. Then I used an oval cutting system from Creative Memories to give it the curved edge. I stamped the grape cluster in black water proof ink and watercolored it in. I went over the grapes with a reddish purple color first, then shaded in the shadows with a darker purple color. I used Distress Ink to color in the stem and leaves as well as the banner. I glued on the watercolor panel using liquid glue and finished it off by adding a dotted border to the curved edge. This card definitely reminds me of summer! Here is a link to the challenge!
