To the perfect pair ;)
Pear is a single image from The Landing Pad set which will be released tomorrow by Kim Hughes for Cornish Heritage Farms. The stamped image is a little inchie, I haven't done too many of these, but thought that this would be a fun way to highlight the pears. The pear was masked and stamped again in order to get the 2 pears together, now that I look at it, the one behind should have been stamped a wee bit higher to create the illusion of it sitting behind the first pear - oh well, that's the way it will stay! After stamping, they were colored in with Copic Markers
( YG11, YG63, Y11, W1) and Glossy Accents were applied. The inchie is mounted on a brown scalloped square ( Nestabilitie die) with dimensional foam.
The rest of the card is easy peasy - A Muse Kitchen Collection patterned paper is adhered to the Neenah Classic Crest Natural White base, a length of ribbon from Michaels is added, the sentiment from Mona Lisa's Classic Essential Espressions is stamped in the same ink as the pears, and finally the image is adhered with dimensional foam.
A side note, I discovered a terrific blog some time ago when I was blog hopping. It's not craft or stamp related at all....now I know some of you might not go there because of that, which would be a sad thing. Her writing style is so fun, her recipes to die for, and it's a great place to get lost if you have the time, be prepared to be there a while and laugh out loud!
