Less is More Challenge #235: the colours of berries

Less is More Challenge #235: the colours of berries.

I've used a home made purple Distress diy inkpad, but I htink I ended up making Dusty Concord or something very close to it, more blue in my opinion, but my Dusty Concord is empty so I can't really tell very well, that's also in there in the middle and Festive Berries for the red.
I have strawberries and blue berries in mind.
It's a bit confusing, what in the USA the call blue berries we call forest berries (bosbessen) and what we call blue berries are infact white in the middle and a cultivated variety of the wild forest one which are all blue inside..but..the the shape and the colour on the outside is the same ;-)

I've masked off a banner on the front panel, inked it up, then splattered it with water, white and brushed pewter spray stains.
Used the Simon Says Stamp BIG HELLO I just got in the mail today! Had to use
Raised it up by stacking a few white die cuts and placed it inside the negative space, I call it camouflaged diecutting, not sure what the proper term is.

Mounted it all on the cardbase with foamtape.
