Post 223- CAS Fruity Birthday Card

Hi friends!

This is the third post in which I share my experiments of trying to convert other shaped stamps into summer fruits. 

This is a 5 by 7 side folding card. I was happy to use up some of my colored cardstock snippets here, I stamped on them with Ranger's archival inks, colored them with zigs where ever required and then fussy cut them to get the fruits. Added a few highlights with a white gel pen. Then stamped the rectangle base and the sentiment within it from the W & W The big, the bold and the happy set in versafine onyx black ink, after that stacked the fruits and adhered them to the card base and finally stamped a few hearts from the W & W Welcome to the Family with Evelin T Designs Stamp Set.  I think the strawberries came out quite nice and the watermelon could have looked much brighter stamped on a white cs, will remember that for future projects. 

For the strawberries (circled in red ), grapes (circled in green) and Kiwi Fruit (circled in blue) I converted these stamps from W & W's In Bloom: Lola's Bouquet
 For the watermelon I converted this circle stamp (marked in red) from W & W's A Tree for all Seasons.
 For the pineapple, I partially inked up the penguin's body from W & W's Stampet: Penguin

Here is a photo of the card:

I am playing along with the following challenges:
