So Sweet

I purchased this Concord & 9th "Orange You Sweet" stamp set a short time ago when they were having a sale.  I liked the look of it when it was first released but talked myself out of buying it at that time.  This is the first time I used it and felt like it turned out to be a hot mess!!!   This is a fruit layering stamp set and I stamped the first solid image layer in an orange color, and proceeded to stamp the second segment layer with black ink as well as the outline stamp.  Then I started worrying about it, because if you look at a real sliced orange, the inner membrane is white, as well as part of the peel!!  I decide to not worry and repeated the rest of the stamped orange background.  Next I stamped the large SWEET sentiment image in the center of the background and realized it was super crooked!  At this point I took a stitched rectangle die & cut the entire base out after "leveling" the sweet word!  Heat embossed the"orange you sweet" sentiment with white powder on a black strip & adhered above.  The last disaster came when I mounted that panel unevenly on black card stock, and adhered that whole panel again unevenly on an orange card base. Although the T in sweet looks faded out in the bad photo, it is a very solid black in real life.  Oh well...I still think it's cute!  Thanks for stopping by to take a peek!
