I photographed the basket of grapes for the centre of this card during my recent visit to The Eden Project in Cornwall - it was part of a display in the Mediterranean Zone, and I loved the look of all the different colour grapes set against the texture of a shallow woven basket. Yesterday I finally got around to 'extracting' the basket from the photo in Photoshop so that I could use it in one of my 'shadow frames' as you see here.
I decided to quill some grapes - one bunch of green and one of red - to complement the shot ... quite fiddly to make, all those tiny tight coils! Anyway, I quite like the look of the splashes of colour against a white background. Oh yes, and I used a little leaf stamp to create the dark green vine leaves at the corners of the frame.
I've got another picture of a basket of lemons, too, which I hope to use in a similar way. So many pictures, so little time!!
