A is for Apple

Happy weekend! Here in my neck of the woods, a new school year is just around the corner, and so the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers' newest challenge, A is for Apple, could not be more timely! No snark this time out for me, just a seasonal card:  

I stamped my apple three times, once on my patterned paper background, and twice on watercolour paper. I used distress inks to watercolour the entire image, as well as an extra leaf and the apple label. I distressed the edges of the patterned paper with some antique linen distress ink, and added a bit of random stamping in barn door - the same ink I used to colour the apple. The patterned paper actually a few red flecks in it, giving me the idea. 

Be sure to visit the Snarky blog to admire all the creations of the SIstahs, as well as that of our current Queen, Lisa! Come and join us for a chance to be crowned our next snarky monarch! 

Supplies: white cardstock, Canson watercolour paper, Graphic 45 The Three Rs patterned paper, Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous Schoolhouse Blueprints & Hero Arts Envelope Pattern Background stamps, MFT extreme black & barn door, evergreen bough, twisted citron, stained walnut & antique linen distress inks, Echo Park We Are Family alphabet stickers

Pin It Now!
