Today, I'm participating - playing, actually - in the weekly challenge over at Stamp TV for the first time. The team provided the photo below to be our inspiration. My eyes went straight to the apples.
To create my apples and pears, I first die cut the fruit out of white cardstock. Then, I started daubing several colors until I was happy.
I created my "accidental background" when I was coloring my fruit on a piece of scrap piece of cardstock. I thought it looked so pretty with the colors all mixed up, so I decided it would be the best background for my card.
There's still some time if you want to create your own card. Here's a link to all the rules.
<<< DESIGNER TIP OF THE DAY >>>
Don't be afraid of colors. Most objects have several different, sometimes surprising colors. I used four colors on my apples and three on my pears. I tried several different color combos before I was happy.
Jump in and give it a try! And remember, it's only paper.
May the Lord be glorified by the work of my hands,
