SSS Dream Big, Lemon Zest

There are so many great dies in the Simon Says Stamp Dream Big release.

This Lemon Zest set is another of my favorites that I couldn't wait to work with.

I wanted my lemons to be on the graphic side of things, so I went with two yellows with a fair amount of contrast.  I used the lighter for the lemon body and the dark for the highlights.  For those little lemon 'freckles' I applied adhesive all over a small piece of printer paper, adhered it to the back of the lemon, and then inlaid the little bits.

Two pretty different shades of green added to the contrast as did the ivory flowers with the yellow centers.

I played around a bit with the different die cut pieces to get the arrangement right, and then I added some dimension by popping some pieces up with foam adhesive while adhering others directly to my cardstock mat.

The sentiment is from the Reverse Chill Summer sentiment strips.

That's all for me.  Hope that you are staying cool where you are!  After a week of high 90s, we're in the low 80s today and it feels great!
