I apologize for being so lost at the end of the week. We had mid-70 degree weather and we spent a lot of time outside enjoying it. Then near the end of the week I got a phone call asking if I could foster another Aussie for a few days while they got a more permanent foster home in place. We picked her up today and she is a sweetheart. Her name is Sage and I’ll share some photos of her and Bandit tomorrow. Someone spent a good amount of time training her and while I was playing with Bandit she’d follow commands to get a treat as well.
Anyway, our trip to pick up Sage left me running super behind on getting this card posted. I just made it now and it’s almost dinner time. I will be on time next week though.
I used the new Studio Sketches stamp set from Stampin’ Up! along with Watercolor Trio from the Summer mini catalog. I pulled a few masculine colors – Garden Green, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake pattern and Soft Suede dsp from Thoroughly Modern and Wild Wasabi. I didn’t do any water coloring. I stamped the image in Soft Suede and then inked the pears in Pear Pizzazz before cutting them out and adhering with dimensionals.
Here is the fabulous sketch from Jen.
