Fruity Punch Art

I was inspired to create some fruity punch art to go along with the new Peachy Keen fruit sentiment sets. PK-162 Fruit Sentiments One and PK-164 Fruit Sentiments Two are perfect matches!

Three of my cards are 4 x 4 in size and the lemon card is 5 x 4.  For the step by step instructions of the fruit, please see the bottom of my post.





Fruit Instructions:
Punch the following pieces for the apple:
(2) Extra Large Ovals (Cherry Cobbler)
(2) Small leaves from Blossom Petals Builder (Certainly Celery)
hand cut stem (Chocolate Chip)

Punch the following pieces for the lemons:
(3) Small Ovals (So Saffron)
(6) Jewelry Tags (So Saffron)
(6) Small leaves from Blossom Petals Builder (Certainly Celery)

Punch the following pieces for the cherries:
(3) 3/4" Circles (Cherry Cobbler)
(2) wings from Bird Builder punch (Certainly Celery)
(3) stems from Bird Builder punch (Chocolate Chip)

Punch the following pieces for the watermelon:
(2) Extra Large Ovals (Garden Green)
(2) Large Ovals (Cherry Cobbler)


Apple Assembly:
Overlap ovals and glue in place.  Sponge edges with Cherry Cobbler ink.  Glue stem on top.  Fold leaves in half and sponge center crease with Wild Wasabi ink.  Sponge edges of leaves with wasabi ink and glue to top of apple.  Add white highlight with unibal gel pen.  Use small flower or circle punch to punch bite mark at top (optional).

Lemon Assembly:
Sponge edges of all saffron pieces with More Mustard ink.  Cut bottom half of each jewelry tag off.  Glue on each end of small oval.  Fold leaves in half and sponge center and edges with wild wasabi ink.  Glue 2 leaves onto end of each lemon.  Add white highlights with unibal white gel pen.

Cherries Assembly:
Sponge edges of circles with Cherry Cobbler ink.  Fold leaves in half and sponge fold and outer edges with garden green ink.  Trim leaves off stems and group together.  Glue leaves at the top. Glue cherries onto stems and add white highlights with white gel pen.

Watermelon Assembly:
Sponge edges of green ovals with garden green ink.  Sponge edges of red ovals with white craft ink.  Glue red oval onto center of green oval.  Cut a little less than half off the top of each oval.  Hand draw the seeds onto one piece.  Cut the other piece into thirds and draw seeds on.
