Hello Everyone – Happy Monday! Can you believe July is over already? Today I am sharing a card using the Medium Bold Silhouette Pear with Leaves stamped in Versamark ink on white cardstock. Using stamping pastels and sponge swabs, I mixed a combination of green, yellow and rust color to create the realistic look of a pear. It has been ages since I have used my stamping pastels and I am so pleased I chose to grab them for this card.
As I was looking through the store at Art Neko, I noticed they have a very nice sable brush that would work great with your chalks/ pastels. Less waste and you would have the ability to control the color application along with blend it well.
The background paper is a mixture of sprays and ink. Holly Brown sent me a bag of scraps and treasures of backgrounds she created, so I am using them on my cards. 🙂 I adhered the sprayed cardstock on an angle, on top of green cardstock and really liked how it looked. Using scissors, I trimmed the extra cardstock from the edges where it hung over.
Using black ink, I stamped the sentiment on the paper. I thought the text, “You make a Great pear” is so fun! I then adhered the image on green cardstock and added them to the card with dimensionals to pop it up. Using a writing tip marker, I added dots along the layered cardstock. To complete the card, I used a mini glue dot to add one dew drop.
I hope you enjoyed my project! Stop on by later this week to see what Holly and Sabrina have in store for you!
