Welcome to the new challenge for the House Of Cards, we have a lovely summer feel to our challenge prompt this month, all we need now is the rain to stop here in the UK!
I found a rather nice vintage poster for lemonade which I printed out twice, cutting out the lemons and decoupaging them. The green mount matches the base card just to make it pop out a little.
The yellow background is made using Distress Ink Squeezed Lemonade and a light burst stencil, I thought it looked a little like a slice of lemon. The poster is mounted on the lemon background on thin foam pads.
The glass of lemonade was hand drawn and coloured with alcohol markers, with a little white gel pen to touch up the slice of lemon on the rim. It's fussy cut and mounted on thick foam pads so it stands a little above the poster.
We have lots of inspiration for you at the House Of Cards so please pop over and take a look, the challenge runs until the end of the month.
