Berry Friends & Berry Besties with The Sassy Club!

Thursday, November 3, 2022

I have to say, I'm really proud of my coloring on this card. 10 sweet images that took me quite a while to color and I can really say my color has improved so much the past couple of years - practice really does make progress. These two adorable Berry sets from The Sassy Club barely fit onto this slimline... in fact they don't! But this card is going to be more of a home decor than a mailed card, so it's totally fine.

To inspire my coloring, I looked up the original/vintage characters and colored them using ALL of my alcohol markers... Not even kidding. Spectrum Noir Illustrators + Coloristas as well as my older mix of colors + my new skin tone and pastel Ohuhu Markers. I stamped them with my ink from The Sassy Club, colored them all in and fussy cut them out.

For the background, I used Lawn Fawn die cuts. The largest slimline (so I could fit in as much as I could) is colored with Distress Oxides and glued to a card base. I added some Distress Ink and metallic watercolor splatter to my strawberry die cuts and also added some Distress Ink to the berry baskets. After gluing the strawberries together, I tucked most of them into the baskets. You can see my video down below to see a quick one minute showing the basic steps of the card and how I layered everything together.

I know I covered a lot of the berries, but these characters are the star of the card! I knew I wanted to make something that showcased all of them as I worked so hard to color them, so they're jam packed (pun intended) onto this card. Let me know below in the comments what your favorite cutie is!
