Fresh Fruit

The same stamp set as yesterday, but fruit as promised.  I went much lighter in tone and worked with water coloring for a softer look.  Maybe this is my guilt for not picking pears that are ready to go, but I would rather just enjoy the art of it instead.  I do have pears to pick though…


This particular stamp set recreates the look of water coloring so nicely.  I started with a base image of the pear in pear pizzazz of course.  The light area is left blank, all ready to receive another color.  I painted in some so saffron and then blended into the green.  It was really fun.  The stem and leaf stamp is one and was stamped in garden green.  I also went over that image lightly with a wet brush to blend again.

I thought about leaving the background blank, but decided it looked unfinished.  I kept with the so saffron, just diluted it a bunch more.  I didn’t worry about being too perfect around the edges, but since I was working wet on dry I didn’t have too many problems.  There you have it!  I even made a pretty pear on the inside of the card.  I think I should go pick pears, put them in a basket and give them to someone along with this card.  Maybe tonight when it cools off some.
