I've been using pre-made elements on cards lately, trying to clean up all of the unfinished items that I've accumulated through the crafting years. This herringbone background was made with 1/4" strips of cardstock left over from various cuttings. I just put them together in random fashion and ended up with a summery mix which I toned down with a black card base. The image is from IO and I colored it with Copics, adding some wink of stella to the lemons in the pitcher, as well as the cherry and strawberry. The sentiment is from SSS. I'm entering this into the Cards in Envy challenge which is "Summer Cards - or cards with hot colors."
I wish you a great Thursday, and I think I'm going to go make a pitcher of lemonade now. Thanks for stopping by!
