Life is Good Card (Jane's Doodles DT Spotlight)

Hi everyone! :o)

Today is my turn to be on the spotlight over at Jane's Doodles and I made this Life is Good Card:o)

To make this card I was inspired with my own cards, one made in July 2016 (find it here), second made in March 2018 (find it here) and third made in February 2019 (find it here). I went with same layout, CAS design, used Rainbow colors on all cards, but used different techniques and images to create them. :o)

I used stamps from GORGEOUS Jane's Doodles 'Life is Good' stamp set.

How I made my card...

I stamped fruits on a white watercolor paper and colored them in watercolor technique using Distress Inks and a dark green aquarell colored pencil. After drying, I fussy cut fruits, traced edges with a black marker and softened each fruit on a soft working mat using a stylus ball. This curled each fruit image a bit.

Then I stamped fruits and a sentiment on a white top folded card base. I colored fruits with black marker and then glued watercolored fruits over them. With softened and slightly curled images I created a dimension on my card. :o)

As a finishing touch, I embellished my card with enamel dots. :o)
