Flourishes #164

Thanks, blogging friends, for all of your prayers and well wishes for my DH.

Time for another Timeless Tuesday Challenges at Flourishes. Mona is this week's hostess and she is challenge everyone to create a tag or card focusing on a "Fruit" theme.




I am extremely disappointed in my camera....the cardstock behind the image actually matches the cherries but for some unknown reason it looks 'pinkish' in the photo and all the other photos that I took with different lighting :-( 

The cherries were coated with glossy accents to give them a bit of shine. The sketch that was used to create this card was from Tuesday Morning Sketches.


There's still time to enter the Flourishes challenge and the Tuesday Morning Sketches challenge. Both offer prizes!!! So grab some papers and play along.

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.

Oh, frustrating! I am no photographer, believe me, but one tip I saw ages ago was to use either a white or a black background, because it makes it easier for your camera to contrast the colours, and it seems to work for me. Now focusing properly...lol, that's gonna need help(for me!)
I LOVE how you've coloured the cherries - the highlights are perfect, and the glossy accents makes them look even better!

This is so pretty!! Your coloring is amazing!!
And no purple! :) (not my fave color, either)
In the Bible, purple represented royalty and wealth. They mocked Jesus at His crucifixion and put a purple robe on Him.
