This image is from the 2011-2012 Stampin Up! Idea Book and Catalog "Faith in Nature" stamp set, I just love the 3 images on it.
I decided to stamp the Pear image onto a panel of Canson water color paper with Versa Mark ink and heat emboss it with Crush Curry embossing powder then, I color it with a bit of my Calypso Coral, Chocolate Chip and Old Olive markers and the aqua painter, then I stamped a couple of little leafs from the Altenew Persian Motifs stamp set, just because they look a lot like the leaf on this pretty pear.
I die cut the image first nesting 2 of the dies to create the small and larger die cut then, I did the same with the Chocolate Chip card stock to create the frame around the image with Spellbinders scalloped circle dies and put them back on the panel like puzzle pieces. I stamped the "Hello" sentiment with Calypso Coral ink and heat embossed it with clear powder, the strip of Calypso Coral is punched with the retired SU Dotted Scalloped Ribbon Border Punch. Here is a close up of how pretty the embossing came out.
Thank you so much for stopping by and for your comments.
Until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
