Paper Smooches SPARKS-You Are a Peach

*** Scroll down to the post below or click HERE to see my card for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge! *** 

This week's Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge theme is anything goes.  I inked up a new to me Paper Smooches set, Fruitastic, for this fun and fruity creation.

You Are a Peach card-designed by Lori Tecler/Inking Aloud-stamps and dies from Paper Smooches
I stamped the set's peach image on white cardstock and colored it with Copic markers.  It took a mix of a few markers before I got a peachy shade I was happy with!  After coloring the image, I used the matching die to cut out the image.

I paired the peach with some green plaid paper I found on my desk.  The "you are a peach" sentiment was stamped on a coordinating green cardstock strip.  I edged the green cardstock with a narrow strip of kraft cardstock before adding it to the card, then topping it with the peach image.  A trio of peachy enamel dots arranged around the image completed the design.
