Fall Apples

I definitely think of apples and apple orchards this time of year, so this apple stamp set is perfect.  I colored with Copics, cut out the image, backed it up on some ribbon, and mounted it on a BG that I stamped with Distress ink, to create my own patterned paper.  After mounting it on matching CS, I put it all up on dimensionals, to raise it off the card.  You can eliminate that part is you wanted a flatter card though!




Please hop along with us! You have a chance to win one of the above stamp sets! Just comment on the following blogs (don't forget this one), each day for more chances to win! (You do NOT have to comment on all the blogs each day! The names are drawn randomly!) All four winners will be announced on Oct. 12, 2013 on the Mark's Finest Papers blog. You can go back and comment if you missed a day. (HINT: The more you comment, the more chances you have to win and comments on the MFP blog count twice!) The deadline for commenting is 10 PM EST on Friday Oct. 11, 2013.

I love the design of your card. Your colored sliced apple looks so nice against the outline of the apples on the background.

Such a great card. I like that you used the apple brach as the BG papers and still use the sliced apples as a focus point. TFS AJ-
