A Sweet Pear

Just look at this sweet pear!  I had so much fun coloring it with my aquapainter.  I wondering if I am moving into a new phase in my crafting where coloring will be prominent???  I hope so, that pear was delicious to color.  I made it for Hannah's Ways to Use It challenge from yesterday called Heavy Metal.  I feel I must apologize to Hannah for using such little metal on my project, but I was just absorbed in this pear and the mini brads just seemed to do the trick here.  My background was a little boring, so I just smeared my Versamark cube around for a bit of interest.  I really like the randomness that it added and my card base isn't so flat.

In my world today is the drumming workshop for my daughter (sponsored through the County Library system's summer reading program) and the Jelly Belly taste test!  Should be a fun day!  Wish me luck.  Happy Friday!

Details - Stamps: Faith in Nature; Paper: Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip, Watercolor paper; Ink: StazOn Timber Brown, Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, More Mustard, Versamark; Accessories: mini brads, word window punch, MM edge distresser, stampin' dimensionals.
