Good morning! My cards today were made with another stamp set from Our Daily Bread called the Fruits of the Spirit.

I used USArtQuest's watercolor palettes to color the fruit bowls on the first two cards. The fruit bowl is really shimmery in person, but I think it's hard for the camera to pick it up all the shimmer. These paints are similiar to Twinkling H2o's, except that they come in a palette rather than individual pots.

For the third card, I used Koh-i-noor's Watercolor Palette to color because I wanted to color a more vibrant fruit bowl. I bought the palette locally, but here's a link to see an online photo of what the palette looks like. Unfortunately there is no purple, so I mixed blue and red to make my own!

I don't know if you've noticed from my posts so far, but I love using my scraps when I'm making cards. Every card you've seen of mine so far has been made entirely from my scrap drawers. I hate to waste beautiful paper, so I'll usually make up a variety of cards when I sit and stamp. It's fun for me to see how similar papers can make entirely different looking cards using various stamps.
