Creations, Citrus Tags and a Gift Basket

I am focusing on citrus this month, and thought I would try citrus stamping

How hard could it be?

Harder than it looks!

I quit trying pretty quickly because painting citrus is easy peasy

I shared a tutorial for painting watermelon, lemons and limes a couple of years ago here

A couple of strokes and voilà…

Tip: mix a little of the rind color into the white for the flesh of the fruit

I made some place cards for the Citrus Explosion table

And a gift basket tag

Add a special message

And tie it on a special gift

Who wouldn’t want a basket of these beauties?

And tuck in some fresh flowers

This will spread warmth and sunshine on the coldest of days!
