I hope everyone is having a great week. I finally had a few moments of free time to color and decided to use a stamp set from Flourishes called Pears. I've used portions of this stamp in class, but I had not colored up the main image for use on a card. It was quite fun to play around with various colors and see how to get the different color groups to blend into each other.
The paper was pulled from my growing hoard of papers and the die cut is from Memory Box called Sienna Floral. The sentiment is from the Pears set and done with yellow embossing powder.
I have no idea what this type of pear is called. I just used a picture from the internet that I thought was interesting for reference. I'm sure someone will be able to say what kind it is! Now if it were a cookie or a cake...1) I wouldn't have to use a reference picture and 2) I'd definitely know the name and could probably recite the ingredients and/or where to buy them!!
Of course these were colored up with a variety of Copics. And a big thank you to one of my awesome students, Kathleen, who showed me how to create the look of an underlay color using the lighter marker! Sometimes I get so focused on trying to figure something out that I am only looking how to figure out the task in one dimension. So thank you Kathleen for shifting my focus and showing how to get it done...you rock.
Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope everyone has an enjoyable rest of their week.
