Papertrey Ink Blog Hop

I haven't had a lot of time to stamp lately as I've been helping my son with his new online business, Nerd Nation, and working on some other crafty ventures that hopefully I can share soon. Quick plug - if you know anyone into comics, Star Wars, anime, gaming and all other geeky topics, please share the link to Nerd Nation with them. We would love some new visitors!!

Anyhow, I know you're here for the Papertrey Ink blog hop so let's get to it!

Our inspiration photo this month is:



And the first thing my eye went to was the pear, and the pale pink flower. Here is the card I created based on the photo:


I used Sweet Blush and Spring Moss cardstocks to make the three panels on my kraft card base. I stamped the pears from A Second Helping of Sunshine in Spring Moss and added some highlights with Copic markers. The bowls were stamped in Autumn Rose and Classic Kraft, then they were cut out and inked around the edges for definition. I added some tiny flowers along the bottom of the bowls in Sweet Blush with Copic colored centers. To finish it off, I wanted a slightly rustic feel so I added some crocheted cream lace and a few wraps of tan twine.

Thanks for stopping by and for more hopping, head over to Nichole's blog here.
