Tart & Tangy

I was playing around with my SU! Watercolor Crayons last week and wanted to use the new stamp set Tart & Tangy. I love this little four piece set - it just says summer to me!

To stamp the strawberry I misted directly on the rubber image, then colored using my wcc on the stamp, misted again then stamped on cold pressed watercolor paper. Sometimes if you mist the stamp again quickly, you can stamp a second lighter image. After it dried, I used a pen to outline the image and add the seeds.

all images copyright 1990-2008 SU!

The paper is a Hostess Level 1 gift called Print Pack (I think ... if I'm wrong, comment here and I'll add a correction). I used Real Red and Glorious Green to mat the image. I debated adding a green grosgrain ribbon behind the strawberry, but I think I will leave it as is ... simple.
